Los Angeles Times –

California’s most adventurous wolf has not been heard from since biologists lost track of the “pings” emitted by OR-93’s radio collar on April 5 in San Luis Obispo County, about three hours’ drive north of Los Angeles. Deepening the mystery, officials have not picked up a “mortality signal” from the young male’s collar, indicating that OR-93 had not moved for at least eight hours. In search of an answer, state biologists in Oregon and California on Friday said they are collaborating on a plan to fly over his epic path in a plane equipped to detect the faintest signals emitted by its GPS and radio transmitter.
