A doctor treating a 5-year-old Colorado girl attacked by a bear outside her home says she received dozens of internal and external stiches but is not suffering from life-threatening injuries.
The girl is now in fair condition at St. Mary's Medical Center.
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 screamed at the bear, which dropped the girl.
A spokesperson for the hospital said that the family didn't want any information about whether the girl is still at the hospital.
The woman told Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) officers that her daughter went outside at about 2.30am on Sunday, Mother's Day in the USA, after hearing noises she thought might be coming from her dog.
