In other animal news, love isn't in the air for some animals this week. OR7, a lone wolf that has wandered over 2,000 miles between Oregon and Northern California since last september, has returned to California. Little does he know that he is the only gray wolf in the state and won't soon find a mate in California.

Yang Guang and Tian Tian, the Edinburgh Zoo's two pandas on loan from China, failed to produce offspring before a brief mating season ended this week. Despite meeting out of public view and encouragement from zookeepers, the animals did not successfully mate.

Below, check out the best animal photos from around the world this week and vote for your favorites.
