Cop Saves Tiny Terrified Sloth Stuck On A Highway

One does not simply cross the road, especially if one is a… sloth.

The unexpected passerby went on an adventure in Quevedo, central Ecuador. But the sloth’s engine ran out in the middle of the road. That’s when the local police went on the most adorable rescue mission and commemorated it by posting pictures on their Facebook page. The little traveller had gained many fans who were glad to know that the story ended well.

But the most important question still remains: why did the sloth cross the road..?

More info: CTEcuador

Although the sloth was scared and clinging to the post…

..it kept the positive attitude…

…and tried to be cooperative

True. But the cute part is that he's safe now because he was found by the right people, who could just to ignore the poor animal, but chose to save it instead. As for how it ended up in a place like this, well, animals are curious, they can get lost sometimes.
