Sloth turns valve at gas pipeline in Peru

LIMA, July 11 (UPI) — Workers at a Peruvian gas pipeline captured video of a sloth accidentally joining the workforce by turning a valve.

The video, recorded in late June at a gas pipeline in the Peruvian Amazon, shows the sloth hanging by its feet from a guard rail and pulling on the large valve with its arms.

The sloth, apparently aiming to get into a comfortable hanging position, ends up turning the wheel again and again as it tries to find a steady handhold.

The workers, who can be heard laughing in amusement at the sight, said they could only watch the sloth as a company policy prohibits them from disturbing wildlife.
