M56, the intrepid Gulo that made the trek down from Grand Teton was photographed again in CO. It was varified as M56 from his characteristic chest markings and from a corresponding flight checking his location. His internal transmitter is still functional but it shouldn't last too much longer. According to comrades in the CPW, he has been relentlessly covering alpine ground in the state in search of a potential mate. The fact that he hasn't settled in to a traditional home range (still over 240 sq miles in one Idaho study) is not a good sign. It probably means that he hasn't found a female and that he is destined to wander and wander until he dies.... unless CPW reintroduces.
One thing's for certain... the guy who got the pic should buy a lotto ticket!
