Video: California’s Only Wolfpack Welcomes 3 New Pups

Three new pups were born to the breeding female of California’s only wolfpack this spring and they have just been caught by trail camera. Wait until the one minute mark to hear the wolves howl.

While gray wolves are native to California, they were hunted to local extinction within the state during the 1920s by ranchers and farmers who were worried about the impact of wolves on their livelihoods. During the late 1990s, California started trying to reintroduce gray wolves to the state but with little result.

California’s first modern day wolf pack, the Shasta Pack, was spotted in August 2014 but fled over the border into northwestern Nevada in late 2016. The pups in this video were born to California’s second and only current pack, the Lassen Pack. Experts say this is a positive sign for statewide wolf recovery although agriculturalists are still wary.

According to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife the three pups raise the number of wolves in California to between seven and ten. Gray wolves are currently an endangered species and protected within California and on a federal level.

This Video From Chamonix’s Glaciers Is A Reminder That Climate Change Sucks

If there’s one place in the world that serves as a stark example of the devastating effects of changing climate, it’s Chamonix’s Mer De Glace. The massive glacier running from the flanks of Mont Blanc once reached the outskirts of the town of Chamonix. Today, the foot of the glacier is thousands of feet above the valley floor, and is continuing to melt at an unprecedented pace. For anyone who has ever been lucky enough to climb or ski in those mountains, you’ll remember the markers put in

Finally, the duo is giving the people what they want, which is a MTV cribs-style tour of Salen’s Dodge Promaster. On top of being an accomplished skier, cinematographer, and photographer Salen is one hell of

Dramatic Video Shows Popular Climbing Spire Collapse After Sawtooth Earthquake

On the evening of August 7, a magnitude 4.2 earthquake struck in Idaho’s Sawtooth mountains, causing a large landslide and the collapse of part of Baron Spire, a popular climbing route in the range. The zone, nicknamed “Old Smoothie” was heavily damaged by the rockfall, though it remains unclear which climbing routes were affected. The landslide was caught on video by a group of climbers on the far side of the lake, who had just descended through the gully the rockslide rips through. RELATED:
