A woman mauled by a polar bear while walking home from a party in Canada discussed the attack.

Erin Greene said she remembers the attack, which occurred after a Halloween party.

"Within seconds of seeing him, he was already on my head and just kind of scratching at me and biting my head and pulling," Greene said.

Greened needed 35 staples to close a wound on her head, and she was left with puncture wounds on her arms.

A friend who witnessed the bear attack is organizing a fundraiser to help Greene pay for her medical bills.
