Many animals living in the affected areas of Bolivia have been forced to relocate due to the recent wildfires. Among the escaped animals was a sloth mother, who was frightened by dogs on the way and dropped her cub. Little Sloth got lost.
Earlier this month, Marco Greminger, a veterinarian, received a call about a baby sloth found alone near Trinidad.
Greminger was able to locate the baby’s possible mother. She hid in a tree, hoping for a miracle that her baby would be discovered. The veterinarian and two animal rescuers placed the cub near his mother’s hiding place in a tree…

“Mothers are mothers whether they are animals or humans. The loss of a child is great grief in the heart of any mother,” Greminger later wrote.
Following a touching reunion, mother and child were taken to the clinic for evaluation and recovery.
