2015:  Spring Cub with 402 and 3 Littermates (812 BTB Remaining Male), Speculated

811 is suspected to be the lighter 2015 remaining female offspring of 402 .  If that is true, than 2015 would be 811's year of birth.  811 would have had 3 other littermates when first arriving at the Brooks River.  812 is believed to be one of 811's littermates. 402 and her 4 spring cubs can be seen from 1:48 - 2:32 into this video by park visitor, Donna Archer:

402 returned to the Brooks River on June 14, 2016 with 3 remaining yearlings from her 2015 litter of 4 spring cubs.  811 is suspected to be the lighter 2015 remaining female offspring of 402.  If that is true, than 811 would have been a yearling remaining with 402 and her littermate 812 .  402 lost one of those 3 remaining yearlings sometime between June 17, 2016 and June 19, 2016 and was seen with only two remaining yearlings June 19, 2016 and after.

2016.06.17 - 2016.06.19:  Sometime between June 16th and June 19th, 402 lost one of her three remaining yearlings.  June 19th and after, 402 was observed with only two remaining yearlings.  

2016.06.30:  402 with her 2 yearlings (811 & 812) being followed (shadowed) by 719 (435 Holly's recently emancipated 2.5 year-old) video by Erum Chad (aka Erie).  In the video it appears as if 719 was “sizing up” the 402s. She rests by them then follows them up river a bit and lays down and rests maybe 20 feet away from the 402s.  :402 eventually charges 719, but she was undeterred.

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.  812 is the only suspected surviving littermate of 811.
