Researchers have been monitoring the wolf, referred to as OR-93 by his tracking collar. It left Oregon earlier in the year, later spent time in Modoc County, and then passed Highways 4 and 108. It is the furthest south a wolf of this type has been tracked in the state in around a century.

It has now made its way to Mono County east of Yosemite National Park. Researchers say it is likely searching for a mate as it travels across the new territory.
