Around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night, Naples resident Andrew Meunier's dog ran scared back toward his house after a bear began chasing it. "Any bear to me is big, but I have to say this one here is probably between 250 to 300 pounds, and like I said, she's had 3 cubs around with her", says Kirk Amerine. The bear then took a swipe at Meunier's face and chest, according to WBBH.

The bears reportedly stand about 5 feet tall.

"I came outside and he was right there and I tried to run and it wasn't fast enough", said Meunier. He said he struggled to get away, and managed to get back through his front door.

He described the attack as "feeling like someone had punched me".

"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. "I look like I got in a fight with Wolverine".

Adding, 'It could've been a totally different story'.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) placed traps around the neighborhood - baited with donuts, according to WZVN - in order to capture the bear responsible for the attack.

Several neighbors tell Fort Myers-based WFTX they've seen a mama bear and her cubs roaming around the complex.

Andrew Meunier say around 11:00 p.m. he chose to let his small dog out of his apartment. Doughnuts have been placed in the traps because it's candies that attract the bears.
