Fla. woman doesn't blame bear for her attack

LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman who was attacked by a bear last weekend says she doesn't want bears to be killed by wildlife officials for doing what wild animals do.

Terri Frana told Orlando television station WFTV on Wednesday that residents of her Lake Mary neighborhood need to learn to expect the wild bears and understand their danger.

More than a half dozen bears have been killed by wildlife officials since last Saturday's attack. Wildlife officials say the bears pose a danger since they've grown accustomed to eating human food, either from garbage or fed by residents.

Frana says the bear pushed her down, bit her leg and then bit into her skull, trying to drag her into the woods. She escaped and ran inside her house.
