Ecuadorian Cops To The Rescue!

Being a man of the law in Ecuador requires discipline, commitment and extreme seriousness — unless of course you’re dealing with an extremely cute problem, like a sloth. Then it requires a massive photo shoot and maybe a few Instagram filters.

The Ecuador police force recently ran into the cutest hitchhiker we’ve ever seen. Look at this dorky little thing!

Meet the sloth that will make your day AT LEAST 14% better. Guaranteed.

Why did the sloth cross the road?

Getting to the opposite side of an interstate seems like it might have proved a little stressful for this little sloth, so when Ecuador’s police found him fearfully wrapped around a guard rail (surrounded by a puddle) it’s safe to say he needed a little rescuing.

A little help from the cops..

According to police, an officer found the wee bear-clawed-creature waiting for the right moment to cross, so the cops decided to give him a hand. The sloth was taken to the vet to be cleared for injuries before being released back into its natural habitat.
