What stronger bond is there than a mothers love for her child? The video above is a perfect example of this. In the footage, the mother bear gets all her babies to safety at all costs. The obstacle came when they reached a tall fence, as the mother bear leaped up with ease, she managed to pull the first cub over. Whereas, the second one was a bit more tricky. Alas, the mother bear did not leave any solider behind! She kept trying and then eventually, by the scruff of the cubs head (literally), she hoisted the little bear over the fence to safety.
