On Monday, a wild black bear stole the show at Walt Disney World, and it wasn’t because it had escaped from the Country Bear Jamboree attraction.
The Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland, Liberty Square, and Adventureland didn’t open on time on Monday because of the black bear on a tree.
Disney World said in a statement that the bear had been relocated and that staff from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission had been working to capture it.
On Monday afternoon, the bear was finally cornered.
The wildlife commission speculated that the bear was foraging for food in an effort to fatten up for the winter.
Wildlife officials have stated that while “It is best for bears to be given space and to move along on their own,”but given this situation, staff are working on capturing and relocating the bear.”
More over four thousand black bears call Florida home, with the majority making their home in the state’s central regions, according to the wildlife commission.
