When I saw this Momma Polar Bear’s instincts kick in, I swear my heart skipped a beat.
She appears to be cool and collected as she takes occasional glances at her cub at play, however watch what happens when he steps closer and closer to the edge of the water. Distracted by the play, her baby stepped onto a slippery rock and toppled into the frigid water, struggling to keep his head up. Being too young to swim, he was in serious danger, but, fortunately, mommy was there.
You can hear the gasps of the people who watched the dramatic scene in person, but fortunately the Mama Bear had the situation under control. Quicker than the blink of an eye, she dove in without hesitation.
She may look calm, but Momma Bears are always vigilant, as all moms should be!
