This is the incredible footage of a black bear rescuing her cub after finding him sitting next to a busy road.

The video, recorded by storm chaser Ricky Forbes in Canada shows the baby bear dangerously close to the edge of the highway and looking up at his mother for help.

The mother looks left and right, seeing the potential danger, picks up her cub with her teeth and pulls him to safety.

‘That is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,’ Ricky can be heard saying during the footage"
