This mama bear reacted just like a human mother when she found her cub stuck on a highway. The video (scroll down to watch) was recorded Saturday in Canada, according to the post on YouTube.

The video shows the mama bear look both ways before she reached down over a wall along the highway and grab her bear cub with her mouth.

“Tornado hunter Ricky Forbes was driving through Kootenay National Park when he spotted the black bear cub sitting dangerously close to the highway,” the YouTube post read. “He stopped to film the cub and suddenly the mother popped up from behind the concrete barrier at the side of the road and hauled the cub to safety.”

“That was the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” a man in the video can be heard saying.
