Florida Woman Recovering After Bear Attack

LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) — Wildlife officials are warning residents to watch out for bears on the move, particularly after a central Florida woman was attacked by a bear outside her home.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says Terri Frana encountered the bear Saturday night outside her Lake Mary home.

Officials say that while several bears were observed nearby, only one bear was responsible for Frana’s injuries.

Frana was treated at a hospital and released. Seminole County Fire Rescue officials told reporters that Frana was bitten on her head and arm.

The wildlife commission is investigating and has set several bear traps in the area.

Wildlife officials say bears are leaving their winter dens and looking for food. Their increased activity means it’s more likely to spot bears in neighborhoods.
