Silly sloth, you can't cross the road by yourself!

The sloth was "struggling to cross" the road when it was noticed by officers from Ecuador's transit commission, a spokesperson told BuzzFeed News.

"Yes, can I help you?"

The vet found the sloth to be in good health, and in "optimal condition" to be returned home.

"The cute fellow was OK and taken back to its habitat," the spokesperson said.

The photos have been shared more than 11,000 times.

"Congratulations gentlemen of the CTE, thank you very much for helping the innocent," one woman wrote.

"We will continue to support this kind of case along with the collaboration of citizenship," the commission wrote. "Greetings to all."
