CORYDON, Ind. (WDRB) -- The footage was taken around 8 p.m. Monday night near Corydon. 

Indiana's Department of Natural Resources says the bear was last seen heading north in Harrison County.

Its been the talk of the small community. But the bear hasn't hurt anyone.

Wildlife officials say they may just let it leave the area on its own. 

The DNR says its still monitoring the situation in hopes that the bear doesn't cause any problems.

Another confirmed bear sighting hit closer to Louisville in Bernheim Forest.

Officials say this is not the same bear spotted in Corydon. It's the first known black bear sighting in the 14,000 acre forest.

We're told the bear was seen Sunday in a stream full of bass which it might have been eating and has likely moved out of the area.

Wildlife experts say bears coming into our area follow a path of hills through the Appalachian Plateau.
