SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California wildlife officials say a young member of the state’s only known gray wolf pack has ventured into Oregon.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife says the male wolf, dubbed LAS13M, traveled to Lake County, Oregon, in early October and has remained there.

The wolf was a member of the Lassen Pack first spotted in 2017.

The wolves are only the second pack spotted in far Northern California since the species went extinct there in 1924.
