The Collier County Sheriff's Department says Andrew Meunier let his dog out at approximately 10 o'clock p.m. Wednesday

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.
