A gray wolf was recently photographed on the north rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
It would presumably have ventured hundreds of miles south from the Northern Rockies.
A female gray wolf from the Northern Rockies traveled hundreds of miles into northern Arizona, marking the species’ first appearance in the region in more than 70 years and the farthest journey south. The sighting was confirmed by wildlife officials yesterday, Friday 21,2014.
This picture from the Arizona Game and Fish Department shows a gray wolf that was spotted north of the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona.
Analysis of the animal’s scat shows it’s from a Northern Rockies population. The wolf is believed to have traveled at least 450 miles into northern Arizona, where it’s been spotted at the Grand Canyon and the adjacent forest.
Wolves often roam vast distances in search of food and mates. But the farther they go, the less likely they are to find a mate. So is this grey wolf looking for love?
