(CNN) –– The bear that caused partial closures at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom on Monday was captured without incident and is now being relocated, according to a news release from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

"In most cases, it is best to give the bears their space and move on their own, but given this situation, staff captured the animal and are relocating the bear out of the park to an area in or around the Ocala National Forest," the commission explained.

The agency added that the animal was a female bear.

About a dozen attractions were closed Monday as authorities tried to locate the bear at the Magic Kingdom, according to the My Disney Experience app.

At 11:17 a.m. Miami time, the Swiss Family Treehouse, Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Jungle Cruise, Enchanted Tiki Room, Pirates of the Caribbean, Country Bear Jamboree, Tom Sawyer Island, Walt Disney World Railroad, Liberty Square Riverboat, Hall of Presidents and Haunted Mansion attractions were closed to the public, according to a screenshot of the official app shared with CNN by Craig Williams, Executive producer of wdwinfo.com.

It was not immediately clear if the closures, or how many of them, were related to the bear sighting. CNN has reached out to Disney for more details but is still not receiving a response.

In an earlier statement, Disney said, "We are working with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and have made the decision to reopen Frontierland, Liberty Square and Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park."

There are three other major parks in the complex: EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom.
