Black bears are on the move, searching for food to pack on fat reserves for the winter. And, they get closer than you think.
One bear decided to visit the happiest place on Earth, Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Originally spotted in a tree near Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, the bear caused the park to temporarily shut down multiple lands. Fortunately, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) safely captured and relocated the bear.
If you see a bear in your community, the best thing to do is give it space and let it pass. Learn how to deter bears: BearWise.org.
