SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – An endangered gray wolf that wandered thousands of miles through Northern California is dead. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says the 3- to 4-year-old female dubbed OR-54 was found on Wednesday in Shasta County. It’s not clear yet whether she died by accident, naturally or was deliberately and illegally killed. OR-54 was born in Oregon, where she was captured and given a tracking collar. She came to California in 2018 and roamed more than 8,700 miles, mainly through nine northern counties. She’s believed to be the daughter of a wolf known as OR-7, which wandered Northern California in 2011 and was the first wolf seen in the wild anywhere in the state in over 70 years. Only about a dozen wolves are currently thought to be living in California. A $7,500 reward is available for tips about a wolf recently found shot to death in Modoc County.
