Sloths are wonderful creatures, but sometimes they need a helping hand as they are notoriously slow. So when these people saw one trying to cross a busy road they knew they had to act. Sloths are not dangerous in the sense that they will chase you down and attack, but they do have very thick claws and sharp teeth that they use to climb trees and eat things such as fruits and berries, so if you ever find yourself in a similar situation you should be cautious.
