OR-7 Oregon's Celebrity Wolf has pups

If you've followed the "Journey" of OR-7, you know what a miracle it is that he has survived as a lone wolf after he struck out on his own in search of a mate.  Even more miraculous is the fact that now he has found a mate and (just in time for Father's Day)...yep, that's right, Journey is the proud papa of pups.

It's a confirmed fact. And if you want pictorial proof, just pop over here and check it out.

Wolves have nearly been wiped out but they were put on the Endangered Species Act and are making a come back.


They used to have a bounty hanging over their heads, but the last wolf bounty was collected in 1947. Now Journey has made history by being the first confirmed wolf west of the Cascades since 1947.  

This is a great way to celebrate father's day. 
ade history in the spring of 2011, when he struck out from the Imnaha Pack’s home territory in northeast Oregon in search of a mate. After an epic journey across the state, the two-year old male became the first confirmed wolf west of the Cascades since the last wolf bounty had been collected in 1947.  Since that time, Journey has traveled up and down the Cascades, from the Crater Lake region down into the Mount Lassen area in Northern California, then back again. The wolf is the focus of a documentary that will premiere in Portland on May 25th and an expedition retracing his steps that is set to leave on May 17th. - See more at: http://www.oregonwild.org/explore-oregon/press/conservationists-cheer-news-or-7-mate-pups#sthash.5TLeBpTl.dpuf
