Life History:

2015:

812 is suspected to be the darker 2015 remaining male offspring of 402.  If that is true, than 2015 would be 812's year of birth.  812 would have had 3 other littermates when first arriving at the Brooks River.  

2016:

812 is suspected to be the darker 2015 remaining male offspring of 402.  If that is true, than 812 would have been a yearling remaining with 402 and his littermate 811.

402 had a litter of 4 spring cubs in 2015.  When 402 was last observed in the Fall of 2015, all four spring cubs remained with the family group.  In June 2016, 402 returned to the Brooks River with 3 remaining yearlings.  One of those 3 remaining yearlings was lost sometime between June 17, 2016 and June 19, 2016.  402 was observed on June 19, 2016 with two remaining yearlings.  811 is the only suspected surviving littermate of 812.
