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.

Here’s What it’s Like to be Caught in a Bison Stampede

No, thank you. This video is a great reminder of how I never want to be caught in a bison stampede. It is unknown what caused this tsunami wave of fuzzy Prius-sized mammals to charge through the Yellowstone National Park traffic. My guess is that a middle-aged woman with an iPad spooked them while trying to get photos for family back home. Damn it, Karen, why can’t you just stay on the boardwalk?! Jokes aside, we’re glad that no one was hurt from this uncomfortably close wildlife

Make a Plan to Vote with Protect Our Winters

If we want to protect the places we love—our mountains, forests, deserts, or oceans—it starts by voting. Sounds simple, right? However, our track record isn’t too great: Thirty-five percent of 18-29-year-olds, who said they “definitely voted” in the 2014 midterm election, in fact, didn't actually vote. Yikes. We can do better this November and Protect Our Winters wants to make the process as easy as possible. RELATED: Make a Plan to Vote with Protect Our Winters Protect Our Winters’ Make A

David Godziek Channels His Inner Mafioso in NS Bikes’ Latest Film

Imagine this: you’re just putzing around on your BMX bike one day, having a ball hitting curbs and such, and two scary looking dudes with neck tattoos throw you in the back of their car. You’re terrified, unsure what you’ve done wrong, and they bring you out to a forest, mysteriously full of freeride features, hand you a dirt jumper, and are like ‘send it.’ You’ve basically imagined the premise of NS Bikes' new film. Featuring David Godziek as the shredding kidnapee, the film takes an
