FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida couple is out of the hospital and recovering from injuries suffered when an animal suspected to be bobcat attacked them at a suburban apartment complex.

The Fort Lauderdale SunSentinel reported Thursday that 71-year-old Rupert Fray said he suffered a fractured hip in the attack Friday. Fray says his wife, 85-year-old Eslyn Fray, lost the tip of her right ring finger among other bites and scratches and is recovering at a rehabilitation facility.

The attack happened when the couple was out for their daily early morning walk at the apartment complex in Lauderhill, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale.

The animal was not found. State wildlife officials say they are examining hair samples and other evidence to determine what type of animal it was.
