Andy Meunier was knocked off his feet and managed to scramble back into his home to safety. "I tried to run and wasnt fast enough".

According to WINK News in Florida, the attack is the first documented bear attack in the state of Florida since 1970.

Mr Meunier, 41, sustained a number of cuts, including a large one on his face, which later needed fours hours of surgery and 41 stitches.

A community in Naples fears for their safety-as wildlife officials rush to trap bears showing up in the community. "I'm just happy to be alive it.Ccould've been a totally different story".

But luck isn't the only reason there have been multiple bear sightings at this apartment complex near Gulf Coast High School.

Meunier had a few jokes about the attack, saying that he lost a boxing match with a bear.

The bears reportedly stand about 5 feet tall. "I don't care if this scars, or anything, I walked away with my life, and it could've been a whole lot worse".

Meunier says the bear's claws almost ripped open his face.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission setup traps in the surrounding area by Meunier's home in Naples in hopes of catching the bears before they hurt anyone else. Apparently, this neighborhood has had a bear presence for some time-neighbors say they've seen bears digging through trash.

FWC biologists say there are approximately 4,050 black bears in Florida.
