Wolf OR-54

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Says criminal investigation; wonder if it's routine or they found a bullet in her.

Oregon wolf OR-54 found dead in California.
Gray wolf OR-54 was found dead in Shasta County, California, on February 5, 2020. She was approximately 3-4 years old.

OR-54 was born into Oregon’s Rogue Pack (the daughter of famous OR-7) and first entered California in 2018. Her adventurous spirit was clear, as evidenced by her journey into California and the thousands of miles she traversed (over 7,600) after leaving her natal pack.

According to California Wildlife officials, the wolf’s death is under a criminal investigation.
