The woman, who was not named by wildlife officials, was attacked by a black bear on Jan. 13 in DeBary, a town north of Orlando.
The FWC and Volusia County Sheriff's Office responded to the incident, which happened around 6 p.m. Police released bodycam video from that night and it shows the injured woman with scratches on her face.
"He (was) a bit like jumping over me when I ran, he jumped over me and threw me on the floor," the victim said as he described the incident to officers.
"I heard her scream down the road. It was awful," an eyewitness is also heard saying in the video.
Once at the scene, the sheriff's office saw an adult female bear and her yearling in a nearby tree. Officials fired the adult bear and had it killed humanely because of the possible public safety threat it posed, according to the FWC.
"The 3-100-pound yearlings are enough to survive on their own and therefore no attempt was made to catch them," the commission added.
Bear attacks in Florida are extremely rare. This is the 14th documented attack on a person who has caused moderate to severe damage to Florida's black bears since 1976, when the commission began keeping records, according to the FWC.
The last bear attack in Florida took place in March 2020, when a teenager was bitten by a bear as he was leaning against a tree in a park in Ocala, according to the FWC.
