Bear attacks Florida man letting his dog out

A Florida man was attacked by a bear in Naples on Wednesday night.

"I came outside and he was right there".

Andrew Meunier suffered injuries to his face from the bear's attack, along with several cuts to his chest.

Meunier has spotted bears in his neighborhood before, but had never been attacked.

"It felt like somebody punched me". "It was standing in front of me and I tried to turn left real quick and get back in the house, and caught an uppercut from a brown, or a black, bear". Neighbors say they have seen bears for months digging through trash cans in their yards. "It wasn't until I got back inside, looked down at my hand and saw blood all over".

He says his 7-year-old daughter was asleep inside their apartment, and all he could think about was staying alive.

Flooding and Ice Jams Possible Friday
Saturday's precipitation could include freezing rain, sleet and an uncertain amount of snow accumulation, Thompson said. Chicago can expect any water on the ground from today's rain to flash freeze this evening, according to Fenelon.

"Death ran through my head".

"I'm just happy to be alive", Meunier said. He was treated at a hospital, where he underwent a four surgery where he received 41 stitches to close the deep wound. "It could have been a different story".

Andrew Meunier say around 11:00 p.m. he made a decision to let his small dog out of his apartment.

A community in Naples fears for their safety-as wildlife officials rush to trap bears showing up in the community.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is planning to set up bear traps and conduct searches for bears throughout the area of Dream Catcher Circle in Naples. 'And like I said, she's had three cubs around with her'.
