LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bernheim Forest's bear now has a name.
The name "Bernie" got 56 percent of the vote, beating out Wilson and Ranger.
Bernie was caught on camera roaming the forest about a month ago. Park rangers say hikers should be alert, but don't need to worry because black bears are usually shy.
Bernie souvenirs are now available at the Bernheim Forest gift shop. There's even a sandwich for sale called the "Bernie," which includes a lot of berries and nuts in addition to turkey and cheese.
