LAKE MARY, Florida (AP) - Florida wildlife officials have killed five bears following an attack on a woman in a suburban subdivision.

Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers shot one bear and euthanized three others Sunday night. It's not clear how the fifth bear was killed.

Forty-five year-old Terri Frana was attacked by a large bear in her driveway Saturday. Frana's husband said the bear had his wife's head in her mouth and dragged her about 4 feet toward a wooded area.

He said she managed to escape from the bear's jaw, and then ran inside the house, where she collapsed.

She was treated at a hospital and released.

Officials say the bear that was shot was aggressive and didn't react to them as a bear normally would.

Experts say this is the time of the year when bears leave their winter dens.
