    Longwood woman seriously injured in bear attack

    By Henry Pierson Curtis, Orlando Sentinel

    December 2, 2013


    A Longwood woman suffered serious injuries in a bear attack Monday night as she walked her dogs, according to Seminole County Fire Rescue.

    The bear attacked about 8:05 p.m. as the woman walked her dogs on English Ivy Court, said Fire Rescue Lt. Alisa Keys.

    Once the unidentified woman broke free, she ran to a nearby house, where the resident called 911. The victim remained awake and alert but had suffered serious injuries, Keys said.

    Keys did not describe the extent of the injuries.

    An ambulance took her to Orlando Regional Medical Center about 20 miles south of where the attack took place. Her condition was not immediately available.

    The attack happened near Markham Woods Road, south of Heathrow and about a mile east of the Wekiva River Buffer Conservation Area an area known for frequent bear sightings.

    This is a breaking news story. Check back for more details.

    Better than Zimmerman's old neighborhood.

    Protect all available designated needed Bear habitat before Hunt begins.

    Folks currently living in decent neighborhoods should be so lucky.

    4 years ago we had 0 bears sightings and 0 bear sign.

    Today we have 7 different bears that have been seen and marked by our members. Some maybe the same bear but consider the ones we have not seen. This is on 17,000 acres.

    All I need is a tag and a season and I will have a record bear. He is a beast. Have seen him numerous times.

    There is no doubt a season is needed. Maybe Chuck and his team will convince them one day?

    Predators are not supposed to be un phased by a mans presence! But, I'm sure it is incidents like these,and more to come that THEY need in order to politely ask for a change.

    Unfortunately, it's probably going to take more than one attack. The enviro-wackos and state officials can write off one attack as a fluke. Very sad but it will likely take a child being seriously injured or killed before we see any movement on a hunting season.

    They'll blame it on the woman or her dogs. And that the bear was here first, were the intruders etc etc.

    I agree with the above comments. I 've said in the past all it will take is so rich old lady in her exclusive neighborhood get mauled or attacked by a bear and her schnauzer gets eaten...........season open.

    Its the same crap with wolves, cats and bears...........if they have no reason to fear man (yet they should), they will adjust and see us as a non-threat and that chit is wrong

    Hope she is OK and isn't scarred too bad

    It;s the women's and her dogs fault and the bear was here first.

    Just another way yankees and suburbanites are destroying Florida.
