Bear causes several Disney World attractions to close before being captured

A black bear managed to enter the Disney World park in Orlando (United States) this Monday. His presence prompted the temporary closure of a dozen attractions on Monday as a safety measure, Florida wildlife authorities said.

The animal, an adult black bear, was eventually captured “safely,” according to biologists and agents with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). He was then in a tree at the Disney park, according to the FWC press release.

The bear was transported to the Ocala National Forest, located north of Orlando. It is unknown how he managed to enter the park. “In the fall, bears are more active in searching for food to store fat reserves for the winter,” the FWC continues.

“This particular bear was probably moving around (the park) in search of food,” the Commission added. Asked by AFP, Walt Disney World referred to the FWC press release.
