2016:

402 returned to the Brooks Rivr on June 14, 2016 with 3 remaining yearlings from her 2015 litter of 4 spring cubs.  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 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.
