The unidentified girl was attacked early Sunday near Grand Junction, about 240 miles (386 kilometers) west of Denver, when she went outside to check on what she thought were noises made by her dog.

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

The bear dropped the child after her mother yelled at it, officials said.

A five-year-old girl was attacked by a bear, bitten and dragged before the girl's mother scared off the animal.

Doctors at St. Mary's said Sunday night that Kimberly received more than six dozen stitches, but she's in good spirits.

Paediatric surgeon Charles Breaux Jr said the bear apparently bit her but that she did not have any injuries to her brain or organs, and did not suffer any fractures.

It's machines vs trolls as Twitter unveils new plan to silence abusers
In the blog post , Twitter said: "This technology and our team will learn over time and will make mistakes". Twitter says that abuse reports were down 8% in conversations where this feature was being tested.

Authorities have begun setting up bear traps around Grand Junction in order to capture the animal which attacked the girl, reports CBS4.

CPW officers tracked the bear with the help of federal wildlife services overnight.

Local residents have been advised that there will be a heavy law enforcement presence in the area while they search for the bear, including hounds.

"The necropsy, along with DNA results will provide the confirmation, but we are confident we have the right bear", said Area Wildlife Manager Kirk Oldham.

CPW advises the public to avoid attracting bears, and all wildlife, to their residences by removing attractants, including trash, bird feeders and other potential sources of food.

While bear attacks on humans are rare, Porras said there is growing concern.
