A momma bear in Connecticut stopped traffic as she attempted to get her four cubs across the street, which proved no easy task, evidenced by the fact it took upwards of 20 minutes to get the job done.
The momma bear went back and forth crossing the road, trying to get all the cubs to follow her as she carried one in her teeth, but not all of them were cooperating. They weren’t getting the idea, especially the one which started to climb a telephone pole.
The hilarious encounter occurred Saturday in Winsted with no less than three people capturing video, all of which were featured by ViralHog. The one shared by Rabbi Benjamin Washington seemed to be the most fun:
At one point, the wife can be heard saying, “I feel you [mother bear].” And when a cub retreated back across the street against its mother’s wishes, you can hear the husband say, “She’s like, ‘Are you kidding me? I just got your brother over there.’”
Another video was taken by Robin Covelli, who said on Facebook, “I was very lucky to witness this today. This poor mama bear tried for 15-20 minutes to get her 4 (yes 4) cubs across the street. As you can see they were not very cooperative, but oh, so adorable! I’m sure many of you moms out there can so relate!”
Eventually the momma bear got her cubs to the other side, allowing the traffic to finally pass. Or at least we think so.
