Recent bear attack in Florida on a woman proves that just because you're travelling, everything will go according to plan and the universe will magically make your stay in a certain destination worthwhile. Accidents can still happen, and animal attacks, though unlikely, is still possible. It's best to arm yourself with knowledge and read up on basic facts about your next destination's fauna to prevent any mishaps like the recent bear attack in Florida.

The recent bear attack in Florida on a woman allegedly had the unfortunate Florida resident dragged by the bear from a garage. Currently, she is recovering from the attack. Sheriff's deputies said Sunday that the recent bear attack in Florida reportedly happened as the woman saw the bear strolling into her open garage and sifting through her garbage cans in search of food.

Seminole County Sheriff's Lt. Pete Brenenstuhl reports that the woman who was the only victim of the recent bear attack in Florida saw as many as five bears "of various sizes" rooting through her trash. That's when she happened to walk into the garage. Brenenstuhl detailed that the black bear allegedly dragged the woman "from inside the garage out into her driveway", which left her with scrapes and cuts to her face and legs.

Fortunately, the woman who was the victim of the recent bear attack in Florida, escaped and ran back into her home. Her husband immediately called 911 and the woman was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Greg Workman, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman said that initial reports on the recent bear attack in Florida were wrong. "There were several bears observed near the area, but one bear is responsible for her injuries."

Lt. Jeff Hudson further confirmed that the woman had an "encounter with a black bear" but there were no reports of multiple bears being involved in the recent bear attack in Florida.

On the same day of the recent bear attack in Florida, Saturday, Florida wildlife officials already warned that black bears and their cubs have started moving around in search of food after winter.

Recent bear attack in Florida can be prevented according to the Florida wildlife agency. They continuously urge residents to use bear-resistant trash cans to prevent incidents like the recent bear attack in Florida on the woman.
