    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A lone gray wolf has wandered across the Oregon border into California in what wildlife officials are calling a historic event.

    The California Department of Fish and game says biologists on Thursday tracked the wolf's position to a few miles south of the state line in Siskiyou County.

    A global positioning system collar was placed on the wolf in February. Since then, the 2½-year-old male has wandered more than 300 miles. The GPS data put the wolf in California as of Wednesday.

    Officials say they're only providing general information about the wolf's location, since gray wolves in California are designated a federally endangered species.

    The last confirmed wild gray wolf in California was killed in 1924.

    Perhaps we could encourage more of this migration? Farther south would be better.

    :cool:

    If I ran the wolf re-introduction program, they would have been released in every major city but the dozens. They like them so much, let them enjoy them up close.
