A Florida woman today described the horrific moment she heard a black bear’s jaw clamp down on her head after she was attacked in her own garage over the weekend.

Terri Frana, 44, had 30 staples in her scalp and 10 stitches to her forehead after she ran into five bears outside her Lake Mary home on Saturday night.

The terrified mother said that the bears reacted too fast for her when she stepped outside and as she was mauled she pleaded for help, screaming, ‘Please, my kids need me.’

Frana, told NBC’s Today show that the frightening encounter has left her very shaken.

‘I can’t close my eyes and not think about it, see it, feel it, but that will go away in time and I’m here,’ said Frana.

‘I’m here for my kids.’

Frana said she stepped outside to get her children, who had been playing on their bikes when she was charged by the bears.
