LAKE MARY, Fla. -- 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.

Forty-five-year-old Terri Frana 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.
