A Collared Gray Wolf, named OR-93, has traveled farther south into California than any other documented collared wolf. OR-93 departed his pack southeast of Mt. Hood and made his long trek down into California and eventually ended up in Mono County. In 2017, a 2-year-old female gray wolf made her way down to the Tahoe area, making it the first time a gray wolf was seen around the area. Thanks to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, these wolves are being monitored using GPS collars.
