  • An autopsy has been conducted on the 127-pound two-year-old male bear that attacked Kimberly Cyr outside of her East Orchard Mesa home early Sunday morning

The parents of a five-year-old girl who was attacked by a black bear this weekend were surprisingly calm as they called 911 to report the mauling.

The attack happened early Sunday near Grand Junction, about 240 miles (386 kilometers) west of Denver.

The woman told Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) officers that her daughter went outside at about 2.30am on Sunday, Mother's Day in the U.S., after hearing noises she thought might be coming from her dog. "One of the things we want to do is go to the family and tell them we killed the right bear, and we're glad to hear that she will make a full recovery", Porras said.

Doctors at St. Mary's Medical Center in Grand Junction say the girl is in good spirits and is surrounded by her family and stuffed animals.

The traps will remain in place in the meantime and state and federal wildlife officers, with the help of dogs, will keep searching the area for signs of additional bears.

Dad: Just her. She's the only girl.

It also apologised for "this unintentional mistake and is now conducting internal investigations to quickly rectify this mistake". While Taiwan is self-governed, only a minority of countries recognize its sovereignty as a nation independent of China.

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

State officials have seen an increase in bear conflicts over the years as more people continue moving to Colorado and push farther into bear country. Officers killed the bear before it entered the trap.

Low food quantities force bears to head into neighborhoods and cars to look for garbage to eat.

The attack led officials to renew their call for residents to secure food sources and use bear-proof trash cans.

The area is nestled between the Gunnison and Colorado rivers, which provide corridors for migrating wildlife.

On Monday, one day after the attack, the department announced it had killed the bear suspected of attacking the girl.
