Medford, Ore. -- OR-7, the internationally famed gray wolf, will soon go off the radar as the batteries in his GPS collar are set to expire.

The five year-old male gained international attention for his three-thousand mile trek across multiple states in-search of a mate.

Mark Vargas with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said they do not plan on replacing the device "In reality, we're not learning much more from the critter. It would be nice to know if he eventually finds a mate and if that happens may the fish and wildlife service will re-collar the animal."

OR-7 is still around and Fish and Wildlife officials say his collar, at the moment, is still working.
