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..?
