Incredible moment black bear saves her tiny cub from oncoming traffic as he wandered on to edge of road

This is the amazing moment a bear cub was rescued by its mother after finding itself stranded on the edge of a busy road.

Captured on camera at Kootenay National Park, Canada, the incredible footage shows the tiny cub backing away from the traffic, clearly overwhelmed by its unfamiliar surroundings.

But luckily for the little lost cub, mom wasn't far away and rescues the baby bear by scooping it up in its mouth and hauling it to safety.

The unforgettable moment was filmed by tornado hunter, Ricky Forbes, who was noticed the black bear sitting dangerously close the highway.

"It was a very amazing sight to see," he said.

    It never ceases to aggravate me when someone says "it's just an animal". They have bigger brains and more heart than most humans.
