Right between Mother's Day and Father's Day, wildlife officials confirmed that Oregon's most famous wolf is a father. 

OR-7, the wandering wolf, found a mate and is rearing pups in the Cascades. 

The news punctuated a busy period for wolves in both of our states. 

California wildlife officials announced endangered species protection for gray wolves... even though none are known to exist in the state. 

We visit with Oregon's wolf program coordinator about OR-7's family and the larger issue of wolf management.
