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 animal was scooped up by the workers and taken to a veterinarian.

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 Transit Commission posted photos of the sloth to Facebook, where thousands of people fell in love with the adorable wanderer.
