The footage was captured in British Columbia by storm chaser Ricky Forbes, who said he was driving through Kootenay National Park when he saw the black bear cub at the edge of the highway.

He pulled over to film the cub, when suddenly the mother popped up from behind the concrete barrier and pulled her baby to safety.

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

Note the cub's adorable sibling taking a peak over the concrete barrier to check out the scene after the daring rescue.
