(WFLA) – This mama bear’s quest to get her cubs across the road is a struggle all parents can relate to.
A photographer shared an adorable video of a bear in the Great Smoky Mountains helping her babies cross the road.
At least three of the cubs made it across safely, while two others hung behind. One is seen slowly tiptoeing up the solid yellow line.
“Thank goodness there was not any traffic,” the photographer, Faye Sykes, said on her Facebook page, “The babies were so small.”
But fortunately for the cubs, the mother wasn’t far away and was able to usher them back to safety.
Sykes said she used a telephoto lens to capture the video, which has since gone viral.
