We document a new record dispersal for wolves worldwide. The natal straight-line dispersal distance of a Global Positioning System–collared female wolf from the Scandinavian population was 1,092 km from southeast Norway to northeast Finland, with a multistage actual travel distance of >10,000 km. Natural gene flow to the isolated, inbred Scandinavian wolf population may occur if survival of dispersers is improved.
