He's still trying to piece together his memories of the bear attack that left him with 41 stitches across his face.
A man says he was letting his dog outside in Florida when a large bear attacked him. "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 3 cubs around with her", says Kirk Amerine. They have been seen rummaging through trash cans and knocking them over.
Andy Meunier isn't going to let anything like a bear attack get him down!
"It felt like somebody punched me".
"I came outside and he was right there and I tried to run and it wasn't fast enough", said Meunier. He managed to get up and back into his apartment where his 7-year-old was sleeping before the bear could attack again. "It wasnt until I got back inside, looked down at my hand, and saw blood all over".
2017 hits record for costly weather disasters
Unsurprisingly, more than a third of that comes from damage from Hurricane Harvey - a cost of $125 billion. The only costlier year was 2011, when the Tohoku quake in Japan contributed to a total of $354 billion.
Meunier had to be taken to the hospital for treatment after he suffered several cuts across his head and stomach. 'And like I said, she's had three cubs around with her'. "It could have been a 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.
