The loneliest lone wolf




A week or so ago, California's lone gray wolf passed his one-year anniversary as a transplant resident with the same technical accoutrements some people possess: a Twitter account and an online site about his travels.

'What strikes me about him is that when I talk to the general public they show remarkable knowledge about his movements, much more than some world events,' said Richard Callas, a senior environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. 'No matter how you feel about wolves, when you see one it's amazing.'

Unfortunately, while the young adult male wolf roams the wilds looking for a pack and mate, researchers say he will likely die alone...

2. Is it possible to trap and relocate this wolf?

They are beautiful animals.

6. Nooooooo.

He relocated looking for a range of his own to establish. What should happen is that a female should be planted nearby if anything. And he was smart to go to a state where there probably won't be hunting and trapping of wolves in his brief lifetime... hopefully.

8. Then by all means . . . let's send him a female.

I've only known two wolves. They were very special animals.
I hate to think of the gray wolf's population becoming endangered.

4. Odin watch over this wolf

That he may find a mate and that he and his future pack will not know the evil of men.
