The article presents an account of a wolf, which was transferred from Canada to Idaho in 1995 in an effort to recovery him. The wolf, called B7 by biologists, courted a black wolf B11, called Blackfire. It is noted that the two started feasting on cows, which were a forbidden bovine. They were sentenced to a pen where B7 ran up the fence and chewed the insulators, as noted by Running Creek Ranch, Idaho caretaker Tony Wright in his journal. The pair gave birth to an estimated 22 offsprings, and B7 had roughly 3,000 hunts over the years. In January 2007, B7 was found dead, 100 miles from his Lolo Pass territory, Montana and Idaho.
