OR-7 has more pups, looking ‘lean’

Famed Jackson County wolf OR-7 and his mate have added two new pups to their Rogue Pack in eastern Jackson County, but the wolf whose epic 2012 journey to find a mate drew international interest may be getting a bit long in the tooth, authorities say. Trail cameras earlier this month captured images of two new pups that have boosted the Rogue Pack’s total to as high as nine wolves…At 7 years old, OR-7 has lived past the average age of 6 for wolves in the wild, and he still looks “pretty strong,” Stephenson says.
