A group of Great Smoky Mountain bear cubs, four to be exact, are escorted across a main road by mama.

Cade's Cove is a major tourist attraction in the heart of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

A photographer captured the moment when a sow black bear gently walked her four bear cubs across the road.

These cubs are fresh out of the womb and are presumably just learning to walk.

It's not hard to believe that due to the fire of 2016, that habitat and early successional growth three years later is prime for rearing animal young. This is on full display with this black bear and her cubs.

The average amount of cubs that a sow bear will give birth to is two, with three not an uncommon occurrence.

Four, on the other hand, is pretty rare. It's cool to see the increase in bear populations across the southeast. This is noted by several wildlife researchers.

The Great Smoky Mountain bears are only a small picture of the wildlife that thrives in the National park. Among those species are whitetail deer, turkey, elk and many more.
