LONGWOOD, Fla., March 16 (UPI) -- Wildlife officials in Florida said a woman walking her dog was bitten on the rear end by a black bear.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman Joy Hill said the woman was walking her dog at an apartment complex on Sable Drive in Longwood around 7 a.m. Friday when the bear attacked, the Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.

The woman sustained four puncture wounds to her rear end and was taken to Florida Hospital Altamonte for treatment, Hill said.

Hill said wildlife officers are setting traps for the bear, which they plan to euthanize.
