Traps set to relocate family of bears invading Naples neighborhood

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

It all came to pass Tuesday night, just on 11 p.m. when Meunier, a resident of Amberton Townhomes complex just east of Interstate 75, was making his strides when he noticed the 'surprise animal' standing next to him.

He was knocked to the ground, but managed to scramble to his feet and get back inside the house before the situation got any worse.

Andy Meunier isn't going to let anything like a bear attack get him down! "It was just as scary as you can imagine", Meunier told WZVN.

He described the attack as "feeling like someone had punched me". 'And I tried to run but it wasn't fast enough'. "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. "It could've been a totally different story", said Meunier. 'And like I said, she's had three cubs around with her'.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is now attempting to capture the bear that attacked Meunier as well as any other bears in the area, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Andrew Meunier can thank a black bear for taking a chunk of skin out of face as he was walking near his apartment.
