LOOK AT THIS CUTIE.
This adorable slow poke was found trying to cross a road in the town of Los Rios, Ecuador.
Obviously, he was taking his sweet time and people started to call law enforcement to get this little guy out of danger.
The transit police took their new friend to a vet to get a full check up!
He was 100% healthy and was set free back to it's home (though they didn't specify which side of the road they dropped him off on...lol)
After pictures of this guy went viral (cause he's ADORABLE) messages poured in thanking the transit police and everyone involved.
Officials reached out on Facebook to share that the workers were thankful to all of the people who showed support for the sloth and its rescuers :D
Glad he's safe and sound!
Side note - Can you imagine living in a place where seeing wild sloths was a semi-regular thing?!
I have wild peacocks running around my neighborhood all the time, but that's nothing compared to SLOTHS.
