A 200-pound bear was caught in the same Longwood neighborhood in which a woman said she was attacked by a bear on Monday.
The trapped bear closely fits the description of the animal that was involved in the incident but it has not been confirmed that this is the same bear.
Since this bear was caught within 48 hours & near the area where the woman was injured, the decision was made to euthanize the bear.
The yearling bear that was trapped Tuesday night is at a rehab center in Crystal River and is doing well.
