Andrew Meunier says he was walking his dog at the Amberton Townhomes around 11 p.m. when he saw three other bears, in addition to the 4-foot bear that attacked him. "I tried to run and wasnt fast enough". Meunier was able to flee back to his home before the situation escalated, but not before he'd need 41 stitches to heal the deep gash the bear left across his face.

"It felt like somebody punch me", he said.

"I'm just happy to be alive it could've been a totally different story", he said. Apparently, this neighborhood has had a bear presence for some time-neighbors say they've seen bears digging through trash.

A 911 call revealed that Meunier suffered a minor facial laceration from the bear attack.

Traps were set around the neighborhood by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, using donuts as bait.

WINK reports this is the first bear attack in South Florida since 1970.

The FWC recommends that Floridians take precautions to avoid negative encounters with bears, mainly by making sure that bears have no reason to wander into residential areas. Neighbors believe that's what's drawing those bears in.

Residents have reported seeing a mother bear and her cubs roaming the complex, according to WFTX.

"It can't be. I just got hit by a bear. I did not expect this".
