He soon realized there was a four-foot tall bear standing next to him!

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

Andrew Meunier can thank a black bear for taking a chunk of skin out of face as he was walking near his apartment. The bear attack makes his the first recorded case of a human injury caused by a bear in south Florida.

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.
