Bear attacks Packers fan in Florida

Bear attacks Packers fan in Florida

A bear attacked a man in Naples on Tuesday night, the first time ever in South Florida. Meunier told police he saw three bears total that stood over five feet tall.

Andy Meunier, 41, was attacked by the bear just outside his North Naples home. He noted that he'd seen several bears around the neighborhood before. He was treated at a hospital, where he underwent a four surgery where he received 41 stitches to close the deep wound.

"Any bear to me is big, but have to say this one here is probably between 250 to 300 pounds", Amerine said.

Meunier had a few jokes about the attack, saying that he lost a boxing match with a bear. Doughnuts have been placed in the traps because it's candies that attract the bears.

A Naples man is recovering after he was attacked by a black bear at his apartment complex Wednesday night.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) has placed donut traps around the area hoping to lure the bear. "I don't care if this scars, or anything, I walked away with my life, and it could've been a whole lot worse".

"You immediately have that fight or flight reaction, and I figure fighting wasn't the right one, and I tried to run but it was too quick, one paw came up before I realized what happened".
