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.
