Tragic end to epic journey: Wandering wolf killed by car in Southern California after 1,000- mile trek from northern Oregon

“In a heart-breaking end to an epic journey, California’s most intrepid wolf was found dead earlier this month near Interstate 5 in Kern County, state wildlife officials announced Wednesday, killed by traffic. He had roamed deeper into the Golden State than any wolf in a century. The carcass of the gray wolf, a young male named OR-93, was spotted by a truck driver on the edge of a Tejon Pass mountain town, east of Santa Barbara, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Born in the eastern Cascades of northern Oregon, the wolf set off last January on a lonesome journey into California, then across 18 counties, traveling more than 1,000 miles, averaging 16 miles per day. He was last reported in Ventura County in October, where wolves hadn’t been spotted since the 1920s.”
