Porras says warming temperatures on Sunday made the hounds' ability to track the bear less effective.
She was listed in fair condition in the afternoon but chief operating officer Bryan Johnson says her family didn't want to release any more information. When she got up to go inside, the bear grabbed her and pulled her out of the doorway, according to the press release.
According to her mother, Kimberly Cyr had gone outside to investigate noises in the yard she may have thought was her dog.
'Before the sun rose on the morning of Mother's Day, she truly exemplified the love and courage of what it takes to be a mother and, because of those actions, her child is here today, ' said J.T. Romatzke, regional manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. "And by doing so, she probably saved her little girl's life", said Porras, AP reported.
CPW told CBS4 Sunday afternoon they have set up three traps in the neighborhood which will be left overnight.
Breaux said the bear bit the girl multiple times on her backside.
State officials have seen an increase in bear conflicts over the years as more people continue moving to Colorado and push farther into bear country. Wildlife officers in Mesa County are now searching for the bear to make sure no one else is attacked.
