A woman out walking her dogs in a gated community in Florida was attacked by a bear.

The 54-year-old woman barely escaped with her life and now authorities are searching for the bear.

The woman ran to a neighbor's house, who called for help.

Wildlife officials say this has never happened in Florida before. They've set a number of traps filled with glazed doughnuts.

In the last five years, complaints about bears from Florida residents have doubled.
