Ricky Forbes of this month caught footage of what appears to be a mother bear rescuing her cub from a highway.

The adult bear uses its mouth to pick up the cub, which is sitting beside a concrete barrier as traffic zooms by.

The video has become popular, making its rounds on YouTube, Facebook, news websites and more.

The clip is short and sweet. Watch it below.
