In 1961, Smokey got a girl bear to live with, and her name was Goldie Bear. The zookeepers hoped that these two bears would make some little baby Smokey Bears, but they never did. So in 1971, the pair "adopted" an orphan bear cub, who was named Smokey Bear II.
The first Smokey Bear died in 1976, and his obituary was in lots of newspapers. It was even on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Smokey was buried in Capitan, New Mexico, at Smokey Bear Historical Park. There is a plaque on his grave that says, "This is the resting place of the first living Smokey Bear...the living symbol of wildfire prevention and wildlife conservation."
