Terrified Little Sloth Rescued On Highway By Cop

Traffic police in Ecuador discovered a Sloth that had attempted to cross the highway, but instead clung to a guard rail in fear until it was rescued. They said they had the little guy checked out with the vet and then released him back to his habitat.

The transit commission released a follow-up comment to their facebook post after much interest from the community (Translated from Spanish):

Dear, we are grateful to all for your concern. Be advised, the sloth bear rescued by our unis was reviewed by a veterinarian, the same one that determined that I was in optimal conditions to be returning to their habitat. We are grateful to all those people who were interested in the health of the animal. We will continue to support this kind of cases along with the collaboration of citizenship. Greetings to all.

Enjoy some more pictures!
