All along the way, the police department updated concerned locals on Facebook and many were eagerly awaiting the sloth's release back into the wild. Once the rescue was complete, they wrote, "We are grateful to all those people who were interested in the health of the animal. We will continue to support this kind of case [in] collaboration [with our citizens]. Greetings to all." The Comisión de Tránsito del Ecuador definitely deserves a round of applause for protecting both human and animal residents.
