He's big, but not so bad. After a year in CA lone wolf amuses public, scientists with travels

After tracking him for a year, California wildlife officials say that the lone gray wolf who migrated from Oregon likes to travel more than most.

Since he took off from his pack in northeast Oregon the wolf has traveled more than 3,000 miles.

Scientists call him OR-7 because he was the seventh wolf in Oregon to be outfitted with a GPS tracking collar. It's why wildlife officials have been able to keep up with him as he follows migrating deer around the northeastern corner of the California.

Scientists say he might be looking for a new pack or a mate. Karen Kovacs, a state wildlife program manager, says the chances of him finding either are slim.

Most gray wolves stay within 100 miles of where they were born.
