Adorable Sloth Is Rescued from Highway Median

Why did the sloth cross the road? We don’t know, but it definitely got stuck in the median on the way. In Los Rios, Ecuador, commuters were surprised to see an adorable sloth trying to make its way across a busy road. Of course, the sloth, being a slow-moving creature, got stuck in the median. Luckily, the Transit Commission of Ecuador leapt into action and saved the little guy. He has since received medical attention and has been given a clean bill of health.

(translated from Spanish) Thank you all for your concern. We inform you that the sloth rescued by our soldiers was checked by a vet, who determined that it was in optimal conditions for return to his habitat. Thankfully we have all these people who were interested in the health of the animal. We continue to support these type of cases with the cooperation of the citizens.
