A five-year-old girl has been seriously injured after being attacked by a bear outside her home in Colorado. She is at St. Mary's Medical Center in Grand Junction and listed as in fair condition.

The father of the 5-year-old girl who was attacked by a bear early Sunday morning now says he was mistaken when he told a 911 operator that his daughter had been camping in the backyard alone when the attack happened. The mother said she heard screaming and found her daughter being dragged by a large black bear.

The woman screamed and the bear dropped the girl.

In 911 recordings released Monday, the girl's father calmly says "she's just missing a chunk out of her back, a couple spots in her leg".

"We intend to catch this bear", said an agency spokesman, Mike Porras, on Sunday. "She's hurting pretty good", he said during the call.

"The necropsy, along with DNA results will provide the confirmation, but we are confident we have the right bear", area wildlife manager Kirk Oldham said in the release. "No injuries to her brain or chest organs or abdominal organs and no fractures". "Based on bear behavior, it's possible this bear will come back to the area".

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

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. If captured, the animal would be killed, Porras said.

Wildlife officers placed three traps in the area overnight, actively monitoring them and continuing the investigation, when they saw the bear walking up to a residence approximately a half-mile away from the location of the attack.

There were five bear attacks in Colorado past year.

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