Bear attacks Wisconsin man walking his dog in Florida apartment complex

Sucker maul Andrew Meunier let his dog out just before 10:30pm on Tuesday night at his home in Naples Florida

Meunier told deputies that after his dog ran inside, a bear attacked him, swiping at him with its paw.

Meunier walked outside and saw a 4-foot-tall bear standing next to him. 'And I tried to run but it wasn't fast enough'.

He described the attack as "feeling like someone had punched me".

As the bear's claw tore into flesh, Meunier fought to get away.

Fort Myers-based WFTX reports that neighbors believe garbage left near trash cans at the complex could be attracting bears to the area - and that other bears have been seen near there. "I mean, I didn't feel cuts or anything but it wasn't until I got back inside that I felt water in my face or something, looked down and saw blood all over", Meunier said.

Meunier said he was concerned for his life — and for his 7-year-old daughter, who was asleep at the time of the attack.

Meunier was treated at a local hospital for cuts on his head and chest. "It was just as scary as you can imagine", Meunier stated in the WZVN News video below. 'And like I said, she's had three cubs around with her'. "It could've been a totally different story".

The attack happened in the area of Dream Catcher Circle in Naples.

Andree Meunier was attacked by a bear outside his Naples apartment.

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

Adult black bears in Florida, according to the state wildlife commission, typically weigh between 250 and 400 pounds.
