Oregon Wolves Collared
This May 25, 2014 photo provided by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife shows OR-26, a 100-pound adult male wolf trapped outside La Grande, Ore., and fitted with a GPS tracking collar. The wolf is the 26th to be fitted with a tracking collar since wolves started swimming the Snake River from Idaho in the 1990s. The latest estimate puts Oregon's wolf population 65. A similar collar on Oregon's famous wandering wolf, OR-7, made it possible to track his travels across Oregon into Northern Claifornia in search of a mate.
