California’s first wolf pack found in Siskiyou County

Turns out Siskiyou County’s lone gray wolf sighted this spring wasn’t as lonesome as he or she once appeared.  On Thursday, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife released photos of five wolf pups with a group of adults, providing more evidence that the endangered species was returning to the state…”the Shasta Pack.”  “This is exciting for California,” said department Director Charlton H. Bonham in a prepared statement.  “We knew wolves would eventually return home to the state and it appears now is the time.”
