Oregon’s Lone Wolf Has Pups as California Acts to Protect Species

Just weeks ago, news that Oregon’s lone wolf OR-7 may have found love after years of wandering alone caused some big excitement for his fans and wolf advocates, but now there’s even more good news for both him and for gray wolves.

In May, hopes were raised that OR-7 had found a mate after he and an unknown black female were spotted by remote cameras in the same area of Oregon’s Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. The sighting, and a decrease in his wandering, also raised suspicions that the two had denned somewhere and may have had a litter of pups who would have been born in April.

Yesterday, wildlife biologists from Oregon’s Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service confirmed in an announcement that OR-7 and his mate have indeed welcomed a litter of pups into the world. Only two pups were seen and photographed, but wildlife officials suspect there may be more.

The confirmation marks the first time wolves have been born in the Oregon Cascades since the early 20th century, making it another history-making adventure for OR-7. In 2011, the former loner became famous for becoming the first confirmed wolf west of the Cascades since the last wolf bounty was collected as part of a government-sponsored predator control program in 1947 and for being the first known wolf to venture into California since 1924.

Wolves once ranged widely in California but were persecuted, shot, poisoned and otherwise eradicated from the landscape almost 90 years ago. OR-7′s presence in the state raised hope that wolves would return, along with concerns about how the species would be managed if they did and the usual opposition from hunters and ranchers to giving them protected status.

The news that OR-7 has pups has raised even more hope from many that Oregon’s growing population will eventually make their way to the state and establish territories there. Thanks to the work of their advocates, they may now safely return.


Michael Moore divorce case: Show us the money

Michael Moore and wife Kathleen Glynn have a few things to figure out as they prepare for divorce court in Michigan next month.

Chief among them: What to do with a lakefront mansion that Moore contends his wife wasted millions on, which in turn led to negative headlines about the famously liberal filmmaker like “Moore’s $2M hypocrite house” and “Massive Michigan Vacation Mansion Beyond 99 Percent’s Wildest Dreams.”

The Smoking Gun has all the details and the documents from the divorce case, including an interesting tidbit about Hollywood super-agent Ari Emanuel being called as a witness. He’s the brother of Rahm Emanuel, who is currently Chicago’s mayor and served as President Obama’s chief of staff from 2009 to 2010.

While the split could be contentious, what’s really interesting are hints about the actual net worth of the high-profile supporter of Occupy Wall Street:

The couple’s real estate holdings include a total of nine properties in Michigan and New York. The duo co-owns a Manhattan condo that was created through the combination of three separate units. … While the couple’s combined assets are likely worth tens of millions of dollars, court records do not contain specific valuations for their property.
