KREX 5 News has obtained the 911 call made by the parents of the 5-year-old girl who was attacked by a bear early Sunday morning.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife said they are investigating and actively tracking the bear following the attack which occurred in East Orchard Mesa, Grand Junction.

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

Federal and state wildlife officers are using traps in an effort to capture the bear that is now considered risky. "Based on bear behavior, it's possible this bear will come back to the area".

CPW officers will transport the bear's carcass to the agency's Wildlife Health Laboratory in Fort Collins for a full necropsy, according to a press release.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife, in a statement on its website, told residents to secure their trash, keep pet food inside, and tell officials about any bear sightings in residential areas. Officers killed the bear before it entered the trap.

Breaux said the bear bit the girl multiple times on her backside.

The 125lb and approximately two-year-old male bear suspected in the attack was shot by wildlife officers on Sunday night as it was walking up to a home about half a mile away from where the girl was attacked.

Low food quantities force bears to head into neighborhoods and cars to look for garbage to eat.

"Black bears are trying to share space with an ever-growing human population", the department's website stated.
