A mother grizzly once treated her cubs exactly like this. The cubs quickly started to swim far behind their mother as she moved in ahead of them.
The mother had already swum to the beach, but she lacked the stamina to swim back and help her babies since they could not keep afloat.
Fortunately, a boat carrying some fishermen passed by.
When they viewed this image, they made the quick decision to assist the children. The mother bear saw a boat approaching her that was carrying people.
Because it is impossible to predict how the mother bear will respond, the fishermen had enough experience to know that it is best to avoid touching the cubs.
However, it was also impossible to remove them, so a fish-catching net rescued the day.
They used it to gather the cubs and transfer them to the boat. However, their mother posed yet one other challenge.
They floated rather than approaching the coast because of this. They each landed a bear cub as they went along.
Mom hurried after the cubs and swiftly led them into the forest.
