On the streets of Ecuador, running into a sloth is a common thing. They live freely in their natural habitat, in the forest, as well as in many nature reserves, but sometimes they can still go out to people, usually by pure chance.
That’s exactly what happened to this little one. For what purpose he went out onto the road and decide to cross the roadway loaded with cars, no one knows.Sloths are often very shy and move rather slowly.
It was for this reason that he was only able to safely cross part of the road while traffic resumed and the cars drove in an endless succession.Then the animal pressed against to the bump stop and looked around with fear.
The drivers noticed the forest guest and turned to the police, telling the story of a kid stuck in the middle of the highway and thereby endangering his existence.The police quickly responded to the call and, once in place , they were surprised that it was not a child, but a sloth on the road.
But the non-critical situation even pleased and amused them. The traffic police blocked the road and helped the cub to return to his home in the forest.
As a result of the rescue operation, they managed to make a couple of the cutest shots that were posted on social networks and immediately spread the global web.
