The girl's mother said she was attacked after she went outside to check on sounds she thought were coming from her dog outside at around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. The mother screamed at the bear, which dropped the girl and left.
Wildlife officers monitoring a bear trap shot the animal within about a half-mile (804 meters) of the girl's home that night. They say the bear came within a few feet of their vehicle, looking into an open window.
The girl is expected to make a full recovery.
