Ah, mothers: They’re there for you when you need advice, a meatloaf recipe or, you know, a lift from the side of a busy highway.
Likewise, a baby bear got some much-needed help from Mom after the cutie nearly faced traffic near Kootenay National Park in Canada.
The mama bear comes to the rescue, reaching over the barrier to swoop up her little one in her mouth, reports FOX 59. She even manages with another cub by her side – motherhood, after all, is the ultimate balancing act.
The sweet rescue was filmed by a tornado hunter (watch above).
And, on that note, this little one is so grounded.
