Gray wolf in California for first time in decades
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A lone gray wolf had no idea it had crossed the Oregon border into California, but for wildlife officials it is a really big deal.
Wildlife officials say the significance of the wolf crossing into California is huge because it means a return of a species not seen in the state in more than 80 years.
A global positioning system collar was placed on the wolf back in February.
Researchers aren't sure if the wolf will stay in California or venture back into Oregon or perhaps Nevada.
