Man wearing Packers shirt attacked by bear

Meunier said he'd seen bears in the neighborhood before, though they are not common to South Florida.

According to ABC News, Andy Meunier had just opened the door to his Naples home to accommodate his dog when he turned and saw a bear staring him down. The bear then took a swipe at Meunier's face and chest, according to WBBH.

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.

"I came outside and he was right there and I tried to run and it wasn't fast enough", said Meunier. "I didnt feel any cuts or anything".

"That's run through my head, what if it was terrible and she came downstairs wondering where I was and there I was laying...yeah it's scary", said Meunier.

"Truthfully I'm just happy I got out alive", Meunier said.
