Thank you to the man that picked him up and moved him to safety. I think the others standing around would stop any traffic that would have gotten too close. Sometimes it may be better to let the animal move on his own. Nice video.

Bless the man who helped the sloth but I'm surprised to see none of the people present did anything. They just kept waiting and looking. What if nobody had stopped to give a hand?

Kudos to that guy. Pretty sad that it took that long for someone to lift their skirt and do the right thing. Why is it so hard to do the right thing people? You know, it is called a sloth. Sloth means slow......that sloth would not have whipped its claws around. They are not a vicious animal, like humans are. If there were more people like that guy in the world this world would be a better place.

Picking up that sloth took guts... with those claws he could have twisted around a whanged that brave guy one shot! Well done friend, whoever you are.
