The future is looking a bit brighter for the wolf population in California after a promising discovery in Northern Lassen County.
A mother wolf and three pups were discovered in the forest, and the female has been collared. The grandfather of the pups has been confirmed as OR-7, the famous wolf discovered in Siskiyou County that was the first seen in California in 90 years.
Jordan Traverso with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and Rob Lyn Brown with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife give an update on the animals’ health.
