MILWAUKEE (WITI) — An incredible video filmed by tornado hunter Ricky Forbes captures the moment a mother bear rescues her cub from the side of a busy highway.

In the video, the mother bear can be seen looking both ways before reaching down to save the cub.

The footage was captured in British Columbia, Canada.

“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.”

“It was a very amazing sight to see,” said Forbes.
