Crossing a road may seem to be simple, but when you add four cubs in the mix it will definitely be a recipe for disaster! It doesn’t help that they tend to be rambunctious and inattentive. Human parents can definitely relate to this mama black bear.
A Connecticut mama bear recently brought traffic to a halt as she struggled to get all four of her rambunctious cubs across the road.
Taking care of toddlers and children is a challenge for parents. They tend to want attention all the time and curious about their environment. You need a lot of patience to tend to their needs, yet it is fulfilling to see them grow and learn about their environment.
One of the challenges of being a parent is keeping the attention of your kids. They tend to run around and play with friends. Some of them don’t think of safety precautions because they are too happy absorbing details about the environment.
This is what happened to a mama black bear in Connecticut.
A driver in the city of Winsted has front-row seat to the hilarious scene. Fresh out of their winter Den, a Mama bear had her paws full as she struggled to cross the road with her cubs. For a mama bear, handling four cubs is a lot!
Usually, they can manage for only two to three cubs, so four is a lot. One mother sympathized with the animal’s adorable but difficult chore. It is difficult managing four babies.
“First, I thought one baby had been struck by a car. I came back 15 minutes later to realize mama was simply trying to get all four babies to cross the street together! I can relate as a mom of four myself!” the mother described the incident, according to ViralHog.
The adorable and hilarious video was shot on March 27.
You can see from the clip that the mother bear moved her cubs across the street by picking up each cub in her mouth and pawing across to the opposite of the road. Carrying one cub in her mouth, she pawed across the street while the second cub followed her.
The infinitely patient mother carefully moved her cubs on the otherside of the road. It was so cute watching the third cub follow his mother and siblings. However, the fourth cub was definitely the cheeky one.
Left behind, the fourth cub climbs a pole. It was still play time for him!
But, uh-oh his mama came back…with his siblings!
It was time to go cross the road and come back home. But, the baby cubs weren’t having any of it! Despite their mother’s efforts of moving them using her paws, they persisted and walked back to the other side of the road.
Mama has to start the process all over again.
It was a hilarious scene to watch. Parents can definitely relate to the mama bear. She might even be scratching her head at her kids’ antics.
But, as patient as ever, she continuously tried to move her cubs, only for them to erase her work. It was a sight to see! Thankfully, the police from nearby Winchester were called to the scene.
Instead of driving on the road, the drivers patiently waited for the mama bear to get her brood safely to the other side.
