Mother bear rescues cub from busy highway

Stormchaser (yes, that’s a real job) Ricky Forbes was travelling down a highway in Kootenay National Park in British Colombia when he noticed a small bear cub sitting at the side of the road.

He pulled over to get a closer look when something adorable happened.

“We stopped to capture a shot of a baby bear on the highway only to get much more of a show", explains the tornado hunter.

"While watching the cub, we saw the mama bear stick it's head over the barrier to save it's young from its dangerous predicament. It almost looks like she looks both ways first! A very amazing sight to see”.

The poor cub looked so em-bear-assed to have his mother rescue him like that. We'll stop now.

Ahem.
