Sharon Brecely stopped her car when she noticed the pair grappling in the road and waved at a passing truck to alert its driver.

As seen in the footage, it wasn't an easy task to get them to safety.

Brecely can be heard shouting: "Oh you stupid bears!"

She later said: "My concern was to get them off the road as it is a busy log truck route."
