These little cubs may not be paying taxes, but they sure do owe Virginia State a whole lot after a trooper saved their lives.

The two black bear cubs were rescued by senior trooper DH Cepelnik after their mother was struck and killed by a vehicle. The department posted a photo of the trooper with the cubs writing that he was just doing his job when he rescued them.

The pair is now residing at the Wildlife Center of Virginia where they’re receiving lots of love and attention.
