Florida woman survives bear attack at her home


Florida wildlife officials have killed four bears after an attack on a woman in a suburban subdivision.


Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers say they shot one bear and euthanized three others Sunday night.


Terri Frana, 45, was attacked by a large bear in her driveway Saturday. Frana's husband tells WFTV that the bear had his wife's head in her mouth and dragged her about 4 feet toward a wooded area.


He says she managed to escape from the bear's jaw, and then ran inside the house, where she collapsed.


She was treated at a hospital and released.


Officials say the bear that was shot was aggressive and didn't react to them as a bear normally would.


Experts say this is the time of the year when bears leave their winter dens.
