The Florida Fish Wildlife Commission is currently searching for the unwanted visitor and attempting to entice them by placing cinnamon rolls and other snacks in the area where they were spotted.

Last week there was another bear incident in Volusia County. A woman was attacked near DeBary while walking her dogs. She was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The bear, who is said to have protected her one-year-old cubs, was “humanely euthanized”. The cubs were released because they are old enough to survive on their own.

The FWC says bear attacks are extremely rare in the Sunshine State. The agency receives an average of 6,000 such calls per year. Only 15 incidents of people moderately to seriously injured by these animals have been reported in about 50 years.
