"I don't think it's very deep, but it's an 8-inch cut", Meunier told local news stations while proudly wearing a Green Bay Packers shirt.

The bear was not a stranger to him.

Meunier maganed to somehow get away from the bear and enter his apartment again.

The animal's strike caught the side of Meunier's face, leaving a long gash on his right side.

Meunier had to be taken to the hospital for treatment after he suffered several cuts across his head and stomach. And well, you know what happened next: Meunier was attacked.

"I don't care if this scars, or anything".

"I'm just happy to be alive", Meunier said.

Carol Lyn Parrish, a spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed the agency receiving 13 calls regarding human-bear interactions in the area around the Amberton Townhomes complex since October. "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 three cubs around with her", says Kirk Amerine. "That is what they were telling me in the ER".
