In the footage, thought to have been taken last month, the wild animals had lost their mother crossing the lake after she overestimated their swimming abilities.
No one would have believed them they caught two bear cubs during their fishing trip on lake Vygozero, Russia, but fortunately one of them managed to capture it all on camera.
The experts suspect the cubs’ mom overestimated their swimming abilities when crossing the lake so the little ones fell behind in the cold water. They were found exhausted and minutes from drowning. It was sheer luck these tourists were in the area. They gave them a boat ride to the nearest shore where the babies were reunited with their mom.
