(CNN) –– A bear that caused partial closures at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom on Monday has been captured without incident and has been relocated, according to a news release from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

“Most of the time, it’s best to give the bears their space and move on their own, but in this situation, staff caught the animal and moved the bear out of the park into or around the Ocala National Forest,” the commission explained.

The agency added that the animal was a female bear.

According to the My Disney Experience app, about a dozen attractions at the Magic Kingdom were closed Monday as officials tried to locate the bear.
