If you didn’t already know, the internet holds a fond place in its heart for sloths, so its no surprise that this little fella quickly went viral.

The Ecuador police make a statement.

In response to the outpouring of love for the sloth, the police department submitted a response to let everyone know the sloth was doing just fine and is probably already slothing around and doing sloth things with his sloth friends.

Here’s their statement (don’t mind the awkward translation):

Dear, we are grateful to all for your concern. Be advised, the sloth bear rescued by our unis was reviewed by a veterinarian, the same one that determined that I was in optimal conditions to be returning to their habitat. We are grateful to all those people who were interested in the health of the animal. We will continue to support this kind of cases along with the collaboration of citizenship. Greetings to all.

Greetings back to you, Ecuadorian Comisión de Tránsito!
