Mama Bear Tries to Help Struggling Cub Cross Canadian Highway

A mother bear was spotted coaxing her young cubs over a cement highway barrier in Whistler, British Columbia, as seen in a video recorded on May 4.

Taken by James Hamilton, the footage shows the mama bear walking along the barrier while the young cubs scream for help and try to climb over the concrete barrier.

Hamilton is overheard in the video encouraging the small cub, saying, “Go on, you’ve got it!” and “Come on, buddy!”

Speaking to Storyful, Hamilton said that the small cub never could make it, so the bears climbed back over and crossed the highway at a different place and disappeared into the woods. Credit: James Hamilton via Storyful
