Wildlife Officials Kill Bear That Attacked 5-Year-Old Girl

Scavenger The dead bear’s paw is examined

A black bear stands in a wooded area in Newton Thomson Reuters (Reuters) - Wildlife rangers in Colorado were hunting a bear early Monday that attacked and tried to drag off a five-year-old girl from her yard.

The attack took place in East Orchard Mesa, a small community near the Colorado River and about 250 miles (400 km) west of Denver. She says the bear dropped the girl after she began screaming at the animal.

The child was taken to St. Mary's hospital and she is expected to recover.

The girl's father, Duane Cyr, identified her as Kimberly Cyr, 5.

In a 911 recording obtained by KREX 5 News, the father twice told the emergency operator that his daughter had been camping alone in the backyard when a bear grabbed her by the buttocks and leg.

The 125-pound (57-kilogram), approximately 2-year-old male bear suspected in the attack was shot by wildlife officers Sunday night as it was walking up to a home about a half-mile (0.8 kilometers) away from where the girl was attacked.

Brad Stevens Wouldn't Vote for Himself for COY
I think it's a lot more important to focus on competing with your team rather than trying to compare yourself to others. Much credit has been given to Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "And the guy that should have won got it".


Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are trying to find the bear with the help of federal wildlife services personnel. Breaux said the girl was in good condition late Sunday.

"Fortunately she had no life-threatening injuries, no injuries to her brain or chest organs or abdominal organs and no fractures". "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. "These were injuries to the skin and subcutaneous tissues and muscle on her backside", said pediatric surgeon.

The bear believed to have been involved was trapped and euthanized.

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

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. If it is captured, CPW said the bear will be put down.
