OR-7 Banned From Siskiyou County?

By Jim McCoy Tue 8th May Newswolves

A word of warning to the lone wolf wandering through Northern California: Steer clear of Siskiyou County.
     The Board of Supervisors is set to consider a proposal Tuesday
that would attempt to ban the animal. Any that enter Siskiyou would
"be destroyed."
     Problem is, it's illegal under federal and state law to kill
wolves, which are considered endangered in California.
     But that hasn't stopped local cattleman Leo Bergeron, who is
huffing and puffing about the danger that wolves could pose to
people and livestock. His proposal would call for the removal, or
killing, of any wolf in the county.
     California's lone wolf, known as OR7, crossed the border from
Oregon around Christmas, likely in search of a mate. It's currently
in southwestern Modoc County.
     No livestock deaths have been attributed to the wolf.
