Here’s a short video of a mama bear rescuing her cub that managed to get on the wrong side of a highway barrier. The clip is pretty short and actually repeats three times, so anyone can squeeze it into their busy day. It was taken near Kootenay, BC, which is at the far eastern edge of the province, near Banff and Calgary.
I especially like how the other cub is peeking over the barrier like maybe it tattled to mom. Of course, there’s a quick moment where the second cub climbs on top of the barrier like it’s going to jump over, too, so maybe he/she really can’t plead innocent. My alternate photo caption is, “Hey mom, can I try that?”
