great news! Yesterday, the California Department of Fish and Game told us that
they picked up a signal via plane telemetry from Smokeys transmitter 4.59 miles
from his den site last Friday, April 3. This is a great indicator that he is
alive and well.
Additionally, signals from three of the four cubs released north of Truckee were also picked up via plane telemetry last week, all within five miles of their den site!
