East Orchard Mesa girl in 'fair' condition after bear attack

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo - Mesa County Sheriff's deputies have concluded their investigation into the incident on May 13th where a 5-year-old girl was attacked by a bear in the backyard of a rural home. She yelled at the creature and it dropped the girl. "Before the sun rose on the morning of Mother's Day, she truly exemplified the love and courage of what it takes to be a mother and because of those actions, her child is here today", said Colorado Parks & Wildlife Northwest Regional manager JT Romatzke.

The girl's parents called 911 to report the attack, and her dad told the dispatcher that she had been outside camping by herself, according to the recorded 911 call obtained by Denver's Fox31. He said Kimberly will be "fine" after the attack happened at their D Road home around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. "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. That's when she reportedly saw a large black bear dragging her daughter.

"Fortunately, she had no life-threatening injuries", Breaux said.

"Based on bear behavior, it's possible this bear will come back to the area", Porras said. "No injuries to her brain or chest organs or abdominal organs and no fractures".

CPW told CBS4 Sunday afternoon they have set up three traps in the neighborhood which will be left overnight.

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 last human death from a bear interaction in Colorado was in 2009, according to CPW.

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.

Colorado has an estimated 17,000 to 20,000 bears, a population that's considered robust in a state of 5.7 million people that also attracts many tourists.

"You get sightings year-round because they have that year-round food source, which is trash", Wigner added to the Gazette.
