It does not appear that 201 was observed during official bear monitoring sessions in 2017.  On September 5, 2017 Ranger David Kopshever commented to share a list of bears observed during official July 2017 bear monitoring sessions .   On November 2, 2017 cam viewer Mazey commented to share an unofficial list of bears observed during official Fall 2017 bear monitoring sessions that Ranger David Kopshever emaled to her .    201 was not included on either of those lists for 2017 official bear monitoring sessions.  If cam viewers or park visitors observed 201 during 2017 she was not identifiable to our knowledge.

201 was not included in the 2018 Bears of Brooks River book in the Adult Females section or the Bears No Longer Seen section.  It is not known to us why she was omitted from the 2018 edition of the book.
