Lost pet? Technology comes to the rescue

Lightning lived up to his name a little too well. The dog, a stray living in the woods of New Hampshire, was so wary of humans he tended to bolt whenever rescuers got too close, eluding capture for almost a year.

So when animal rescue folks eventually collared Lightning, they attached a GPS tracking device to him. Now, says his new owner, Linda Copson, if Lightning “gets spooked” and takes off, she will be able to track him across her 13 acres in Sugar Hill.
