The baby bear got a little help from a savvy road worker to get to his mom on the other side of the Washington highway.

The Blewett Pass maintenance worker was “on the south side of the pass when he spotted a bear and her cub separated by US 97,” the Washington State Department of Transportation said in a Facebook post on Monday, Oct. 10.

“John pulled over on the side of the road and activated the message board mounted on the truck to warn traffic to slow down due to the wildlife near the road,” the report said.

A video released by the department shows the cub reuniting with its mother and walking off into the mountains.

“Remember to keep a close eye because there are a lot of migrating wild animals out there right now,” the post said.

Blewett Pass is about 120 miles east of Tacoma.
