A Daytona Beach homeowner found himself under attack after a bear ran onto his own front porch, the second such attack in the area within a week. Walter Hickox’s doorbell camera captured the frightening wildlife encounter. (See below)
“It got me in the shoulder with incisors, I guess, or canines, and scatched my back with its paw,” he said.
He was on his way out to walk his dog when he came face to face with the bear. “All I could see is the radar beam on my dog and screaming and clapping didn’t make him look at me,” he said. “The bear] didn’t break his concentration. He continued to pursue.” He threw a bench against the doorway to keep the bear out. “His head was cocked to the side, like, ‘What the hell are you screaming about?'” This is the second bear attack in Volusia County in the last couple of days. A woman was swiped by a brazen bear while she was out walking her dogs.
