Boaters Capture Breathtaking Video Of Mama Bear Ferrying 3 Cubs Across Lake.

People who live in wooded areas get pretty used to seeing wildlife, but every so often, they catch a glimpse of nature at its finest – and it takes everyone’s breath away! Dan and Nelda Powers understand this feeling well after witnessing a spectacular sight one day when they went boating with friends on Lake Chippewa in Wisconsin.

While they were out on their sunset cruise, they spotted a huge mama bear swimming across the lake with three adorable cubs on her back. They caught the heartwarming moment on video, and now it’s delighting people around the world!

We can’t imagine how difficult it must have been for this bear to carry so much weight while keeping her nose above the water, but she makes it look effortless as she paddles right past the curious humans. Once she gets her family safely to shore, the cubs scamper off her back and climb up the steep bank. Then they dash into the trees together.

“It makes you feel good when you watch it,” Nelda said later, and we couldn’t agree more!

If this doesn’t prove how powerful moms are, we don’t know what could! Check out the sweet encounter in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story.
