This is the wonderful moment when a mother bear is attempting to cross a road with her four young pups. Her aim, however, is complicated by two of the babies who don’t appear to want to cooperate. The incident lasted over 20 minutes, resulting in a traffic gridlock. All of the drivers, on the other hand, have calmly waited for the sad mom bear to succeed.
Robin Covelli, of Torrington, Connecticut, was one of the drivers who saw the entire incident. She even recorded the sweet moment on tape, and the video went viral in less than a day, with millions of views.
Covelli commented on Facebook, “I was incredibly blessed to see this today.” “This sad mom bear attempted for 15-20 minutes to cross the roadway with her four (yes four) cubs. They were not very cooperative, as you can see, but oh, so cute! I’m sure a lot of you parents out there can empathize!”
The compassionate mother bear is attempting to transport her adorable tiny pups from one side of the road to the other, so she grabbed one of them by the mouth to convince the others to follow her. However, while a second cub is following her closely, the other two appear to be somewhat obstinate. When the third cub finally summons the bravery to cross the road, the fourth cub climbs a tree in the opposite direction. Naturally, the mother returns to cross it, only to be followed by a cub she had previously crossed over, much to the amusement of the drivers. In the end, the mother bear is able to gather all of her cubs in one location. It’s not easy being a mother!
Here’s a video of the moment:
