  • 5-Year-Old Attacked By Bear Near Grand Junction

A 5-year-old girl suffered serious injuries after she was attacked by a bear overnight in Grand Junction, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

The girl had gone outside around 2:30 a.m. early Sunday to investigate noises she thought were being made by her dog, the girl's mother told Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers.

She says the bear dropped the girl, identified by her father as Kimberly Cyr, after she began screaming at the animal, U.S. television network ABC News reported.


A five-year-old girl was seriously injured after she was attacked by a bear early Sunday morning. When she went outside to investigate, she witnessed a large black bear dragging her five-year-old daughter. The girl's mom heard her daughter yelling outside their home just east of Grand Junction. Wildlife officers are now combing the area for the bear.

The girl received more than six dozen stitches, but Breaux says she's in good spirits. They said her recovery could take several weeks. Wildlife officials have set traps and are tracking the bear with bloodhounds. If caught, the bear will be put down. Local residents may see heavy law enforcement presence throughout the area, including hounds.

Officials are asking area residents to keep trash, pet food and even bird seed inside, and report any bear sightings until the animal is found.
