OR7 Is A Daddy!

OR7+pups1

June 5, 2014

Really great news! It’s been confirmed OR7 and his mate have at least two pups.Last month, Oregon wildlife officials said they believed the gray wolf may have found a mate, and on Wednesday they said biologists confirmed the pair produced offspring in the Cascade Range, with two pups spotted on camera in a den.” 

How wonderful! There hasn’t been a breeding pair of wolves in the Oregon Cascades since the 1940’s. Congrats OR7, your indomitable spirit and determination to find a mate and start a family has come true. AND you made history once again by being the first wolves to breed in the Oregon Cascades in over seventy years!

 Famous Oregon wolf that trekked to California has puppies

PORTLAND Ore. Wed Jun 4, 2014 10:02pm EDT

(Reuters) – An Oregon gray wolf famous for roaming in and out of California in search of a mate sired at least two pups, playing his part in the first known wolf breeding in the Cascade Mountain Range within Oregon since the 1940s, officials said on Wednesday.

OR-7, a wolf so named as he was the seventh of his species ever collared in Oregon with a tracking device, made headlines in December 2011 when he turned up in northern California, becoming the first wild specimen confirmed in the Golden state in 87 years.

Since March 2013, OR-7 has spent most of his time in the Cascade Range of southwestern Oregon, but was believed to have returned to California twice earlier this year.

Last month, Oregon wildlife officials said they believed the gray wolf may have found a mate, and on Wednesday they said biologists confirmed the pair produced offspring in the Cascade Range, with two pups spotted on camera in a den.

John Stephenson, wolf biologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said that since April, OR-7 has been traveling to find food and returning to the den.

“Each day he comes back to the spot, so he’s been coming back to the den area on a daily basis for a month and half,” Stephenson said. “He’s definitely taking care of the pups.”

Wolves in Oregon and elsewhere across the continental United States were hunted to extinction decades ago. But they were reintroduced to the Northern Rockies in the 1990s, and some later migrated to the state from Idaho.

Oregon’s wolf population is now estimated to number more than 60 animals.

Officials say OR-7 likely has more pups than the two that were spotted, as gray wolves typically breed four to six puppies in a litter.

“This is very exciting news,” Paul Henson, state supervisor of the Oregon office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said in a statement. “It continues to illustrate that gray wolves are being recovered.”

OR-7 was born into northeastern Oregon’s Imnaha wolf pack in April 2009.

Wolves throughout Oregon are protected by the state Endangered Species Act.

In eastern Oregon, they lost their federally protected status in 2011 when Congress lifted Endangered Species Act safeguards for various wolf populations in several states, but protections have remained in place for any animals in the western two-thirds of Oregon.

By coincidence on Wednesday, the California Fish and Game Commission formally voted to list the gray wolf as an endangered species under that state’s wildlife protection laws.

Wolves Love…

“Perhaps it was the eyes of the wolf, measured, calm, knowing.
Perhaps it was the intense sense of family.
After all, wolves mate for life, are loyal partners, create hunting communities
and demonstrate affectionate patience in pup rearing.
Perhaps it was the rigid hierarchy of the packs.
Each wolf had a place in the whole and yet retained his individual personality.
Perhaps it was their great, romping, ridiculous sense of fun.
Perhaps it was some celestial link with the winter night skies
that prompted the wolf to lay his song on the icy air.
For the native people who lived with the wolves,
and the wolves once ranged from the Arctic to the sub-tropics,
there was much to learn from them.
Is it any wonder that the myths of many tribes characterise the wolves
not as killers but as teachers?”
~ Unknown

Island of the Wolves….A Year In The Life of Wolf Pups

                                               

CLICK HERE TO WATCH:

This 30 minute video was shot by RT (Russia Today).  It’s a year in the life of Russian wolf pups.

From RT:

With this 30-minute video we offer you the opportunity to find out yourself. Spend a year with a pack of wolves. At the beginning of the video they are just a month old and have no idea how to survive, but they know they must survive in the wild. Every day brings new discoveries, every step they make gives us a chance to understand the world they’re living in. And this world only seems distant.

==========

These wolves are the same as the wolves being killed in the wolf hunts in the Northern Rockies and by Wildlife Services for the livestock industry.  Think about it.  We’ve lost over 500 wolves this season, wolves just like these wonderful animals.
