A bear cub is captured by a drone climbing the side of a snow-covered mountain to be reunited with his mother. The tiny cub refused to give up. Every time he slipped and slid further down the mountain, he got himself up and continued to climb.
He starts off right behind his mother on the climb, but loses his footing and slides down the mountain. He makes it almost to the top, but slips and starts sliding down the steep slope. At first, you are scared to watch because the cub starts to pick up speed on his fall, and it looks like it might end badly.

Thankfully, the cub regains his footing on some rocks and starts the steep climb all over again. Slowly and cautiously, he makes his way to the top of the mountain. His mother has been watching and pacing from the top the entire time. Once they are reunited, they take off running through the snow.
The viral video has been viewed over 2 million times. It will definitely get your heart racing. However, some believe that the drone used to capture the intense climb was harassing the bears. At one point in the video, you can see the shadow of the drone in the snow and many think it caused the mother bear more stress with a foreign object circling her cub.
The bear cub is a great example to all of us to never give up, no matter what we face. Watch the nail-biting video below.
