Adorable, But Frightened Sloth Rescued From Side Of Highway

Transport officials in Ecuador were tasked with an unusual mission last week: to rescue an apparently lost — and clearly adorable — sloth who had tried to cross a city road but then got trapped in the middle of it.

According to a Jan. 22 Facebook post by Ecuador’s transport commission, the lost sloth was discovered clinging to a guard rail in the city of Quevedo.


The sloth had somehow made it halfway across the street when it decided to take a breather.

The animal was “struggling to cross” the road, a spokesperson from the commission told Buzzfeed.

Transport officials said on Facebook that they rescued the sloth, and brought it to the veterinarian. After the animal was given a clean bill of health, it was returned to the wild.

“The cute fellow was OK and taken back to its habitat,” the spokesperson told Buzzfeed.
