Packers Fan Needed 41 Stitches After Losing Fight To Actual Bear In Florida

Packers fans and Bears fans have one of the most intense rivalries in history, but the rivalry doesn’t ever take place in Naples, Florida.

Well, expect for this particular Green Bay Packers fan.

 

According to a report from WinkNews.com, Andrew Meunier, a Packers fan in Naples, Florida, was attacked by a large bear while walking his dog:

Andrew Meunier was letting his dogs outside when a large bear attacked him. His 7-year-old daughter was asleep inside the apartment.

Meunier says he let his dog out around 11 p.m. when he walked outside and saw a 4-foot bear standing next to him.

“I came outside and he was right there, and I tried to run but it wasn’t fast enough,” Meunier said.

He said he struggled to get away, but managed to get back through his front door.

“I’m just happy to be alive it could’ve been a totally different story,” he said.

Meunier suffered a minor facial laceration that forced him to get 41 stitches. The report also noted it was the first bear attack in South Florida since 1970.
