Authorities in Grand Junction are tracking a bear that attacked a five-year-old girl outside her home early Sunday morning.

Kimberly Cyr's mother told CPW officers she heard screaming around 2:30 Sunday morning. The mother also says the bear let go of her daughter when she began screaming at the animal.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), a state agency that manages up to 20,000 bears, says it's confident the bear that attacked the girl is the bear that was killed. The child heard the early morning noise outside the window, and chose to check out girl thought it was a dog.

A spokeswoman for St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Teri Cavanagh, said Monday that doctors expect the unidentified girl to "mend very well" after suffering apparent bite wounds in Sunday's attack.

"Our officers are actively searching for the bear and will do so overnight and as long as it takes", said Mike Porras, a spokesman for the CPW's Northwest Region office. Local residents may see heavy law enforcement presence throughout the area, including hounds.

He punched the black bear and others sleeping nearby chased it away.

The area is nestled between the Gunnison and Colorado rivers, which provide corridors for migrating wildlife. Officers killed the bear before it entered one of the three traps they set up. "However, we will leave all three traps in place for the time being out of an abundance of caution".

CPW said it will release the results of the necropsy when they become available.
