GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) – The latest news on a bear attack in western Colorado: (all local times):

15:55

A 5-year-old Colorado girl is hospitalized in hospital after being attacked by a bear outside her home.

The attack occurred early Sunday near Grand Junction, approximately 386 kilometers west of Denver.

The girl's mother told state wildlife officers that her daughter went outside at 2:30 am to investigate sounds that she thought might come from her dog. The mother said she heard screaming and went out to see her daughter dragged by a big black bear. She says the bear dropped the girl after she started shouting at the animal.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Mike Porras said the girl had suffered serious injuries and was taken to St Mary's Hospital. She was listed as fair in the afternoon, but Chief Operating Officer Bryan Johnson says her family did not want to release any further information.
