Naples man attacked by bear as he walked dog

A swipe from a bear's paw is one of the most risky in the animal kingdom and Andy was left with a huge gash on his face which required 44 stitches.

Meunier got the surprise of a lifetime (not a good surprise) when he opened his front door on Tuesday night to let his dogs out only to be confronted by a four-foot bear standing next to him.

"I feel like I got in a fight with Wolverine", said Meunier.

Andy Meunier was knocked off his feet and managed to scramble back into his home to safety.

"He was right there", Meunier told WINK News. 'And I tried to run but it wasn't fast enough'.

"I'm just happy to be alive", Meunier said. He said he saw a total of three bears.

He described the attack as "feeling like someone had punched me". "It wasnt until I got back inside, looked down at my hand, and saw blood all over". He was treated at a hospital, where he underwent a four surgery where he received 41 stitches to close the deep wound. "It could have been a totally different story".
