A mama bear was caught on camera over the weekend escorting her cubs across a roadway in Winsted, Connecticut.  

The video below captures a cute moment as the momma bear tries to coax her cubs across the roadway, humorously failing as the bear cubs refuse to cross properly.

Watch it here:

"First I thought 1 baby had been struck by car, came back 15 minutes later to realize mama was simply trying to get all 4 babies to cross the street, together! I can relate as a mom of 4 myself!" the caption on the video reads.

Several drivers waited patiently while the mother bear and her four tiny cubs crossed the road.

If you see a bear, stay calm and do not run. Make yourself look as big as possible by waving your arms. You can also throw rocks and shout loudly, if necessary. In the rare event that a black bear attacks, fight back.
