Police found the furry creature clinging on to post for dear life after managing to back it halfway across the road in Quevedo, Ecuador. 
The animal, infamous for its slow pace, became an internet sensation after pictures of its ordeal posted on Facebook went viral. 
Carlos Lotufo, a spokesman for the Ecuador police, said the sloth was found "struggling to cross" a new highway just outside the city by officers on a routine patrol.

It is thought the sloth may have started crossing the newly built road without realising the danger, as it used to be natural land. 
An emergency team came to the rescue of the mammal, who was looked over by a vet before being returning to his natural habitat in the nearby forest.

Mr Lotufo, who identified the creature as a sloth bear, said the encounter was "very rare".


The officer added that the sloth was "pretty calm" and appeared happy when officers returned him back to the forest. 


 The shaggy looking sloth bear rarely leaves the comfort of the branches of its favourite trees and uses its long claws to scoop out ants and termites to eat. 

Sloths reach a maximum speed on the ground of 6.5ft or 2m per minute.
