A California condor captured on the Central Coast because it appeared to be sick was not only suffering from lead poisoning but also had been shot, animal experts said Friday. Unable to eat on its own, the condor was under intensive care at the L.A. Zoo, and its prognosis was guarded, birds curator Susie Kasielke said. X-rays taken at the zoo showed shotgun pellets embedded in its flesh, Kasielke said. Those wounds had healed over, and it could not be determined when they occurred.

A 14-year-old girl who got lost skiing survived a night of subzero temperatures by using a technique she saw on television. Maureen Lamerdin of Glenbrook, Nev., told authorities she dug a cave in the snow, then climbed in and covered herself with pine boughs. She said she learned the trick from "High Mountain Ranger," a TV show that was filmed at Lake Tahoe. Lamerdin was skiing at Heavenly Valley when she got lost during a snowstorm.
