We have very little information about this 720, an adult female that was last officially observed in July 2006. The only other thing that we know about her is that she had two yearlings in 2005.
What is interesting about 720 is that her bear monitoring number was recycled in 2016, after she had not been observed during official bea rmonitoring sessions for 10 years.
720 has now demonstrated for us how the bear monitoring data numbers are used and then recycled after a bear has not been observed in a long period of time.
This is the 2005 video that led to us learning about this 720:
