The bear dropped the child after her mother yelled at it, officials said.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers killed a bear overnight, believed to have been the bear responsible for injuring a young girl in an early Sunday morning attack.
A five-year-old girl was attacked by a bear, bitten and dragged before the girl's mother scared off the animal.
According to her mother, Kimberly Cyr had gone outside to investigate noises in the yard she may have thought was her dog. The girl is recovering at St. Mary's Medical Center in Grand Junction.

The next day, a window panel "fell off" an Air India flight, injuring three passengers after the plane hit severe turbulence. "The plane was nearing mountainous areas, which makes it more hard to descend", said another pilot with Sichuan Airlines .
Authorities have begun setting up bear traps around Grand Junction in order to capture the animal which attacked the girl, reports CBS4.
Doctors expect the girl to "mend very well", but will monitor her to make sure she does not develop any infections or rabies, hospital spokeswoman Teri Cavanagh said.
The girl's father, Duane Cyr, identified her as Kimberly Cyr, 5.
An officer killed the bear at about 9:30 p.m. local time before it went inside a bear trap, said Mike Porras, spokesman with Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
