A boisterous pair of bear cubs made it extremely difficult for their mother when she tried to get them to cross a road on the weekend.

The clip shows the mama bear grabbing one of her four cubs by the neck and walking down the road while a cute cub followed her.

One of the four cubs runs down the road after his mother
Two stubborn cubs were left behind, however, and one found out a short time later that his mother had left.
That cub is then seen crossing the road as his sibling decided to climb a pole.
The mama bear was forced to cross the road again to get her fourth head cub.
That prompted one of her cubs to follow her on the road again.
She first grabs the stubborn cub and starts crossing the road before putting the baby in the middle of the street trying to grab the other.
At one point, the mama bear seems to try to pick them both up at the same time before getting frustrated and running off with just one while the other follows her.

It looks like one of the cubs has gotten them all to safety, then runs back to the middle of the road and asks the mother to run after it.
“Well, she has finally transferred them all,” a woman who recorded the moment hears say in the background.
