Man Steps Outside, Finds Bear Standing Next To Him

"It was just as scary as you can imagine", Meunier told ABC affiliate WZVN. "I tried to run and wasnt fast enough".

Florida Fish and Wildlife officers were in the neighborhood on Wednesday setting traps hoping to catch the bear before it attacks another person.
