The attack left an 8-inch gash across his forehead and down his right cheek that required 41 stitches, according to WINK.

Andrew Meunier left his home to take his dog out when he realised the one-metre tall bear was at his side. "That's what they were telling me last night in the ER", Meunier said. And well, you know what happened next: Meunier was attacked.

"I'm just happy to be alive", Meunier said. I mean I didn't feel the cuts or anything. Meunier said he'd seen bears in the neighborhood before, though they are not common to South Florida.

Meunier told WINK News he let his dog out around 11 p.m. when he walked outside and saw a 4-foot bear standing next to him. "It wasnt until I got back inside, looked down at my hand, and saw blood all over". 'And like I said, she's had three cubs around with her'. "It could have been a totally different story".
