Cute baby bear trying to climb over a wall in Canada is the distraction we need right now

An adorable baby bear in Canada was spotted struggling to climb over a barrier near the highway this week, and the sweet video is the distraction that we all need right now.

Sarah Patershuk and her family were driving through Rossland, B.C. when they caught the incident on camera.

"It's very common for us to see bears in our little mountain town," she told Freshdaily. "This, however, is the first time I have seen triplet cubs — or just cubs that were so tiny."

In the video, the small bear runs along the cement barrier, attempting to join its mother and two siblings on the other side.

Fortunately, the bear cub eventually succeeds, rejoining its mother and family on top of the barrier.

Bears in Canada seem to be becoming braver these days, with a black bear wandering around Ottawa and another bear taking up residence on a local's roof in Whistler, B.C.

And with at least some social distancing measures in place for the next few months, Canadians can expect to see more wildlife venturing along highways in the near future.
