The famous lone wolf of California has been roaming curiously close to a large wildfire in the Plumas Country this week in what excerts think might be a clever ploy to pick off prey fleeing the flames.

The first Wolf to enter the State of California in almost 90 years (thought to be looking for a mate) was tracked by his GPS collar to within a mile of the 63,160 acre fires still buring out of control Friday.

More at site guys.

I can't wait until I don't have to hear the word "wildfire" in the news! The ones who suffer most are always the animals.

They are smart animals, more so than us humans that are causing more of these fires by spraying this chemtrail crap in the air and the climate warming. They use our planet like it was some sort of control experiment in a petri dish.

Wolves are not stupid by any means. I agree with the wildlife expert that the wolf may be moving closer to the fire to catch prey. Hopefully the fire is contained soon and the wolf stays far away .
Thanks my friend

This is really interesting. I hope that he stays far enough away from the fires to stay safe. I'm amazed at the mileage this solo lobo has walked.! I wish him well. Thanks, Marilyn, good post.!

Yep, I think the wolf is preying on the animal victims of the wildfire. Most of its victims probably have burnt paws, and this is very sad, especially after struggling so hard to survive the fire.
