132 with 3 yearlings July 2015 NPS photo

Adult Female

Year First Identified:  2009 as 4.5 year-old subadult

Offspring Of:  Unknown at this time

Known Litters of Cubs:  2 (2014 & 2018)

Genetics Study Samples Obtained:  132 was successfully darted in both 2016 and 2017 by Ranger Michael Saxton


Identification:

132 is a medium-sized bear.  In early summer, her coat is dark blonde to light brown.  In fall, her coat is brown with some grizzled fur on her head and shoulders.  Her ears are light tipped and lean slightly forward.  Her face is easily distinguished from other bears by the inverted V pattern of fur on her forehead.

Distinctive Behaviors:

In July and fall, she will fish throughout the Brooks River.  Until she arrived at Brooks River with cubs in 2014, she appeared to be somewhat habituated to people and would often walk by anglers in the lower river.  Her behavior was noticeably different with cubs.  Instead of tolerating people, she often avoidd them.  Bears posses the ability to change their behavior to best fit the circumstances.  In this case 132 may have altered her behavior in order to give her cubs a greater level of protection. This has advantages and disadvantages.  Bears who are consistently tolerant of people at Brooks River can fish for salmon at all times, but bears that are not tolerant of people avoid the river when people are present.  For some bears, people can be seen as a threat or a competitor even if that is not our intention. When raising cubs, does 132 face a disadvantage because of her apparent intolerance of people?  Bears who are sonsistently tolerant of people (like adult females 273. 409 Beadnose, and 410) at Brooks River can fish for salmon at all times, but bears that are not tolerant of people ~ those who are not habituated to humans ~ often avoid the river when people are present.  

Life History:

132 has been a frequent user of Brooks River for many years, yet didn't attract much attention from bear watchers until she returned in fall of 2014 with 3 spring cubs in tow.

2014 Season:

Ranger Jeanne's flickr album of 132 and her 3 spring cubs.  Ranger Jeanne provided this helpful information when trying to determine the difference between the 132 family group and the 813 Nostril Bear family group since both sows had 3 spring cubs during the 2014 season.:  "132 has a darker, more uniformly colored muzzle than 813. Her ears are more rounded. Two of her spring cubs are darker brown while one is light. They seem fatter than 813's cubs." Ranger Mike Fitz shared this 2014 season photo of 132 on February 15, 2018 .:

2016:  Adult Female with Three 2.5 Year-Old Cubs

132 is included in the 2016 Bears of Brooks River book on page 36:

"Disadvantaged or not, #132 has been remarkably successful in raising offspring. By the end of 2016 all three of her cubs, now 2.5 years old, were seen frequenting the lower river with her, fishing and often pushing other bears away. Cubs are often emancipated at 2.5 years, but keeping them for an additional summer may have given #132 an advantage – given the size of her cubs, the family “gang” is a force to be reckoned with. Other bears often yielded space to the group, resulting in uninhibited fishing access."

June 2016:

2016.06.07:  On June 7, 2016 in the afternoon, 132 and her three 2.5 year-old cubs were observed as they walked down the Brooks River, into and around camp.  The family groups was observed eating grasses and horse tails.

June 2018:

2018.06.28:  On June 28, 2018 132 returned to the Brooks River with 2 spring cubs.  These are the first spring cubs observed at Brooks Camp during the 2018 season .:

Instagrammer Charlie Sturm posted to his instagram on July 3, 2018 with a photo of 132 and her 2 spring cubs that was taken on Thursday, June 28, 2018.   Charlie shared this information in the instagram post.:  "Had the incredible opportunity to see this Sow cautiously take her two yearlings into Brooks Camp for the first time on Thursday. "

During the July 3, 2018 Live Chat with Mike Fitz and Ranger Russ LaValle from the Riffles platform, Mike Fitz says that he believes this sow with two spring cubs is 132.  

July 2018:

132 with her two spring cubs and/or 132 and her one remaining spring cub were observed three or more times during official July 2018 bear monitoring sessions per Ranger Russ Taylor's (Katmai Ranger) September 14, 2018 13:12 comment that included Ranger Tammy Carmack's offical list .:

2018.07.01:  Flyer 7474 captured the first 2018 video of 132 and her 2 spring cubs on 7/1/2018. The family can be seen off the point. One of the cubs can be seen riding on 132's back at 1:52.

"The beautiful little family last night (July 3, 2018) at the lower platform before they made the ill fated trip to the falls. I am just back into Anchorage this afternoon and am on limited internet so not sure what is the latest update on the remaining cub and its mum. It was a tough evening to be there but still an honour to be witness to these tough lives. I did not see the interaction. I did see the two boars head out of the falls (I was on the Falls platform) and then headed back to the Riffles (to return to camp-I was unaware) to hear and see the tiny bear in the tree and the two NP workers monitoring the situation. We saw the little body but the boar (856) had moved on and the mother (132) was not nearby at that stage. We were/are very concerned about her condition. I will hopefully share some happier pictures of our amazing three night visit (arrival July 1, 2018 - departure July 4, 2018)."

Truman Everts shared a photo of 132 on 4/23/2020. In answer to a question as to the date of the photo, Truman later shared that it was a cropped photo of 132 and her 2 spring cubs on July 3, 2018, shortly before one cub was killed by 856. Truman Everts then shared this July 3 ~18:05 AKDT, 2018 photo of 132 and her 2 spring cubs on 4/24/2020. Approximately 90 minutes later, one of these cubs would perish at the hands of 856. Comment by Truman: "Yeah. You know it's uncharacteristic for me not to date them...(I didn't this time, and cropped [judiciously?] to not complicate the ID, given the heartrending loss of one of these cubs, within 90 minutes). Truman Everts shared this 7/3/2018 photo of 132 with 1 of her 2 spring cubs on 4/30/2020. Birgitt shared this photo of 132 and her 2 spring cubs on 5/18/2020. Truman Everts provided more detail and the date (7/3/2018)  of the photo in this comment on 5/18/2020.  "Thank you, B. A 20x30 poster of this is on my (work) office wall. Despite the difficult timing: This was something like 80 minutes before the incident." [~18:03 AKDT, 3 July, 2018]  Truman Everts shared this 7/3/2018 photo of 132 and her 2 spring cubs on 5/4/2020. "These are the last moments that I saw 132 with both of her 2018 spring cubs. Even though I'm sad about it, I have a poster in my (work) office of this moment (except that 132 is standing, along with the cubs.) I like to look at it every work day because I think it's beautiful...but it also reminds me of the reality of the fragility of life, in the wild. I only recently noticed, while digging deep for new, unseen pics for BearCam folks, that I had this version, with 132 sitting. [sigh]"

On the evening of July 3, 2018 856 killed one of 132's (? ID not firm) spring cubs.  On July 4, 2018 at 06:20 Ranger Andrew popped into the bearcam comments to share the news of the July 3, 2018 incident :

"Hi everyone, last night near the Riffles we had a dramatic reminder that life as a bear can be difficult, dangerous, and short.

Bear 856 came upon what is thought to be bear 132 and her two spring cubs. Bear 856 attacked and killed one of the cubs. After an altercation with 856, bear 132 then left the scene wounded. Her remaining cub was abandoned in a tree above the carcass of its deceased sibling . It could be heard vocalizing and crying out to its separated mother.

The abandoned cub was later seen coming down from the tree, still vocalizing, and wandering around by itself. The whereabouts of both it and its mother are not known at this time.

Though it can be tough to witness, infanticide is a natural part of the bear world. Both genders may kill cubs, it is most often committed by male bears.

Mike Fitz and I will be doing a live chat later today on this topic at 9am Alaska time, 10am pacific. -Ranger Andrew"

Another thing we learned is that the Riffles platform was closed to park visitors on the evening of July 3, 2018 when the incident of 856 killing 132's cub took place.

KNP&P's July 4, 2018 Facebook post shared this information about the July 3, 2018 infanticide incident between 856 and the 132 family group.:  Their Facebook post included two photos (#1 of 132's deceased spring cub & #2 of 132's treed remaining spring cub after being separated from 132 ) courtesy of Ranger Russ Taylor.  In reply to a comment on their Facebook post thread, KNP&P shared this additional information about the incident: "The actual event was not caught on video [by the park service] or in front of the Bearcams. It is likely that it took place simply out of aggression. 856 was seen engaging with 634 Popeye shortly beforehand.".  KNP&P also shared this information about the 132's deceased cub's body :  " The body of the cub will be left in place, particularly because the location (below the Riffles platform) is closed to humans on the ground June 15 to August 15."  KNP&P also replied to another social media user :  "Thanks for the thoughtful comment, Beatrice. This sort of event, although occasionally tragic from our perspective, is a regular and recurring part of their world."  They also shared that this may just be a case of 132 and her 2 spring cubs being in the wrong place at the wrong time .:  "Yes, these are a few of the theories regarding infanticide. This particular instance just may have been an example of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Dominant bears in particular are likely conditioned to attack small, perceptibly weak creatures.  And yes, 814 Lurch was seen killing a cub a number of years ago.":

KNP&P also shared this July 3, 2018 video of 132's remaining spring cub bawling up in the tree courtesy of Ranger Russ Taylor in the comment thread below the July 4, 2018 KNP&P Facebook post by Ranger Andrew.  You can enlarge the video and be sure to turn the sound up to hear the cub bawling.  

On July 5, 2018 KNP&P commented an update in their July 4, 2018 Facebook post thread that 132 and her remaining spring cub had been reunited with a photo of them together.  KNP&P also commented on July 5, 2018 in the same July 4, 2018 Facebook post thread re: 132's physical condition .  "...she (132) appears okay. She did seem to be walking a little stiffly, but hopefully will be back to 100% soon".:

2018.07.04:  There is hope that 132 and her remaining spring cub have been reuntied, but there is no confirmation from rangers with boots on the ground at this time.  Cam viewers, thanks to the efforts of the cam op, were able to observed what appears to be a sow with a single spring cub.  132 is the only sow that has been observed with spring cubs so far in the 2018 season, leaving hope that this was 132 and her remaining spring cub.

11:15 & 11:21:  Ranger Russ popped into the bearcam comments at 11:15 with BIG news!:

"Ranger Russ here. I've received word from two different rangers who witnessed 132 with one cub. So it does appear that they have been reunited. Hopefully we can get a photograph or you'll see them on the cams soon. It does appear that they reconnected."

At 11:21 Ranger Russ shared more BIG news!:

In response to:  "Thank you so much for letting us know....I hope 132 is ok too."

Ranger Russ' 11:21 reply:  "She appears to be."

I was just outside of my cabin when 132 and her surviving coy (now lovingly known as Cubzilla) passed by. It was an amazing site to see them just a few days after the tragic loss of her other coy at the falls. It was so great to see them both thriving and playing together on the cams throughout the rest of 2018 and 2019."

2018.07.15:  Denis Ryan captured this photo of 132 that shows the wound on her chest.  Denis Ryan also captured this photo of 132 with her remaining spring cub and a subadult bear. 

Denis Ryan shared this information about the interaciton between 132's cub and a subadult from that day.:  

"This was taken after stalking this baby cub in a tree for several hours. The cub was chased into the tree by the sub-adult bear. The sub-adult was fiercely pursuing this cub. The cub was scared, screaming for his life making all sorts of noise. The mother returned from fishing in the river to find her cub fighting for his life in the tree. The mother started shaking the tree to scare the sub-adult bear away, so the baby cub could finally return to the ground after three hours of being chased by this white bear. The mother bear wouldn’t stand a repeat of what happened less than 10 days ago, when her other cub was killed by another boar (male bear). The mom and the cub proceed to leave the area following the river bank, where they ran into the sub-adult bear again. This time the mom has got the cubs back."

"A lot can happen in one summer. 

In July, bear 132 and one of her cubs were briefly separated after bear 856 attacked and killed the cub's sibling.

At the time, the surviving cub was seen by itself, calling out from a tree. This week, mom and cub were seen at the lower river, gaining fat quickly as the family prepares for hibernation.

Contrast photos from this week and the July incident."

Sometime in the near future, I will post high resolution versions of some of these photos on Katmai's Flickr account.  Here is a photograph of 132 and her cub on the beach. If you click on the photo and enlarge it, the resolution is much better. Sorry I forgot to ask Mo for the date, but I will ask him for you all. It was within the past two weeks I believe."

Truman Everts shared this 6/24/2019 photo of 132 and her yearling on 4/27/2020.  Truman Everts shared this 7/7/2019 photo of 132 and her yearling on 5/2/2020. "132 and male yearling cub react to a bear moving towards them. At first, this is alarming, and scary, and the family sprints off to the left. 132 allows the threatening bear to chase her and her cub to the edge of Naknek Lake, but eventually decides that the bear is actually a subadult...who she is bigger than...and she ends up chasing that sub away at full speed. :)"
