The FFWC stepped in to handle the situation, and local news outlet WESH provided photos and videos of the bear’s presence. These visuals captured the coordinated efforts to safely capture and relocate the bear to a more suitable habitat.

This memorable day served as a reminder of the diverse wildlife in Florida and the importance of preserving both human and animal safety. As the bear embarked on its journey to a new home, the Magic Kingdom returned to its enchanting normalcy, leaving behind a tale of an unforgettable wild visitor.
