Identification:

600 is a small bear with a blond or brown coat and a faint dorsal stripe. Her face is somewhat distinctive with dark eye rings and a tapered, conically shaped muzzle.

Distinctive Behaviors:

Like other young, independent bears, she spent little or no time fishing at Brooks Falls and avoided older, larger bears. She was seen most often in the cut bank area in July 2015. #600 was not identified in the fall of 2015 and was not seen in 2016.

Life HIstory:

2013:  Spring Cub with 854 Divot & Littermate, Speculated

854 Divot returned to the Brooks River with 2 spring cubs, her 1st known litter.  600 is speculated to be one of those 2013 offspring of 854.

2014:  Yearling with 854 Divot & Littermate, Then with only 854 Divot, Speculated

854 Divot returned to the Brooks River with two yearlings.  600 is speculated to be one of those 2013 offspring of 854 Divot.  Park visitor and cam viewer, Tina Crowe (aka Calliope Jane) observed the three members of the family group together near Big Creek, but then later observed 854 Divot, with the wire snare and just one remaining yearling.  On July 28, 2014, 854 Divot returned to the Brooks River with only one remaining yearling and the wire snare aound 854's neck.  See 854 Divot's wiki page for additional information.

2015:  2.5 Year-Old Independent Female Subadult, 1st Year Classified, Summer Only Bear

600 was observed and classified as a 2.5 year-old subadult female.  It is speculated that 600 is the 2013 surviving offspring of 854 Divot

July 2015:

Fall 2015:

600 was not observed during official bear monitoring sesions in fall of 2015.

2016:  3.5 Year-Old, Not Observed During Official Bear Monitoring Sessions

600 was included in the 2016 Bears of Brooks River book on page 30.:

2016 Season:

600 was not observed during official bear monitoring session during the 2016 season.

2017:  4.5 Year-Old

600 was included in the 2017 Bears of Brooks River book on page 32.:

2018:

600 was omitted from the 2018 Bears of Brooks River book.  She was not included in the subadults, adult females, or bears no longer seen sections.

2018 Season: 

2018.08.03-09.23:  Could this possibly be female 600 in 2018? She would have been 5.5 years old. Cam viewer JG captured 91 screenshots (8/3-9/23/2018) of a bear that resembled 600 and compiled them into a video. Two screenshots from JG's video, #1 and #2,  show a resemblance to 854 Divot. It should be noted that without DNA sampling of this bear, a genetic connection to 854 Divot is impossible and speculative. 854 Divot was successfully sampled between 2005 and 2007 during Ranger Tamara Olson's genetics study. 854 Divot was successfully darted by Ranger Michael Saxton on October 5, 2016. If this bear was sampled, which is unknown, there could be a genetic connection made to 854 Divot or another bear in the future.

904 :  Speculated

904 is believed to be 854 Divot's dark eyed 2016 male offspring.  904 was initially classified as an independent 2.5 year-old subadult during the 2018 season.

905 :  Speculated

905 is believed to be 854 Divot's other 2016 male offspring.  905 was initially classified as an independent 2.5 year-old subadult during the 2018 season.

906 :  Speculated

906 is believed to be 854 Divot's 2016 female offspring.  906 was initially classified as an independent 2.5 year-old subadult during the 2018 season.

Maternal Grandmother:  216 Marilyn , DNA Confirmation 216 Marilyn is 854 Divot's Mother

216 Marilyn is the mother of 854 Divot.  If 854 Divot is 600's mother then 216 Marilyn would be 600's maternal grandfather.  

Maternal Grandfather:  24 BB (aka Bald Butt), DNA Confirmation 24 BB is 854 DIvot's Father

24 BB (aka Bald Butt) is the father of 854 Divot.  If 854 Divot is 600's mother then 24 would be 600's maternal grandfather.

Genetics Study Samples Obtained:

2016:  None Known, Successful or Unsuccessful

There were no known genetics study samples obtained from 600 by Ranger Michael Saxton during the 2016 season.

2017:  None Known, Successful or Unsuccessful
