Colorado girl seriously injured in bear attack outside home near Grand Junction

GRAND JUNCTION (AP) — A 5-year-old Colorado girl is hospitalized with serious injuries after she was attacked by a bear outside her home.

The attack happened early Sunday near Grand Junction.

The girl’s mother told state wildlife officers that her daughter went outside to investigate noises she thought might be related to her dog around 2:30 a.m.

The mother said she then heard screaming and went out to find her daughter being dragged by a large black bear. She says the bear dropped the girl after she began screaming at the animal.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife says officers are tracking the bear with the help of federal wildlife officers.
