Footage is trending of a mama bear swimming across a Wisconsin lake with her three cubs riding on her back.

Nelda Powers, from Indiana, and her friends were on fishing trip in Wisconsin back in June. While on the trip, the group were enjoying a sunset boat cruise on the Chippewa Flowage when they noticed the movement in the lake.

The group watched in amazement as the bear swam past the boat while carrying her three cubs on her back.

ABC News shares a clip of the video on Twitter taken by Dan and Nelda Powers and Bluford and Helen Fitch.

“She’s working so hard,” one person is heard in the video as another exclaimed, “Hahaha that’s so cute!”

When bears made it across the lake, the mom and her cubs begin working their way up the shore before running off into the woods.

“You did it mama” says one boater in the video.
