No charges for parents of Grand Junction bear attack victim

No charges for parents of Grand Junction bear attack victim

A doctor treating a 5-year-old Colorado girl attacked by a bear outside her home says she received dozens of internal and external stiches but is not suffering from life-threatening injuries.

Officials said they killed the bear in a semi-rural, unincorporated area near the city of Grand Junction, about 240miles west of Denver.

The attack happened about 2:30 a.m on Sunday, when the child went outside to check on a noise she thought her dog had made. When she went outside, she saw a large black bear dragging her daughter.

The press release also says the girl's mother said she was inside, then went outside to check on a noise.

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 girl's mother heard screaming. Kimberly Cyr was taken St. Mary's Hospital with serious injuries, but CPW told KKCO her condition has been upgraded to "fair".

"She came out, she yelled at the animal".

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

Three traps were set to catch the bear, but officers killed it before the animal entered one.

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. In the last five years, there have been 13 reported black bear attacks, including this attack.

Last month, a hungry bear got locked inside a auto in Boulder County, Kansas.com reported. The bear approached her, and as she was going back into the home, the bear grabbed her and "ripped from the door", deputies said.

Based on the description of the bear and its behavior, wildlife officers said they are confident the dead bear is the same bear involved in the attack on the girl.
