A 5-year-old Colorado girl is expected to survive after being attacked by a bear.

At 2:39 a.m. deputies responded to the 3400 block of D Road in East Orchard Mesa for a report of a child attacked by a bear, according to the department.

A release from Colorado Parks and Wildlife said the girl, Kimberly Cyr, had gone outside to investigate noises in the yard she may have thought was her dog around 2:30 a.m.

When the mom went out to investigate, she found a large black bear dragging her daughter around. When the mother started screaming at the animal, the bear dropped the girl.

Porras says warming temperatures on Sunday made the hounds' ability to track the bear less effective. Wildlife officers in Mesa County are now searching for the bear to make sure no one else is attacked. She is in good condition at St. Mary's Medical Center in Grand Junction. "She's hurting pretty good", he said during the call. "These were injuries to the skin and subcutaneous tissues and muscle on her backside", said pediatric surgeon. "No injuries to her brain or chest organs or abdominal organs and no fractures".

Wildlife officers are confident the bear they killed is the same one that attacked the girl based on its appearance and behavior, but authorities won't know for sure until its body is analyzed.

"She came out. she yelled at the animal", Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Mike Porras told Fox31.

The bear will be euthanized if caught, and then sent to Fort Collins facility for necropsy. "These kinds of incidents are rare, but they also do indeed occur", said Romatzke. This marks the first in recent memory in the Grand Valley where bears are rarely spotted.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife advises the public to avoid attracting bears and other wildlife to their residences by removing attractants, including trash, bird feeders and other potential sources of food.
