Quick action for slow mover

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

Animals in the wild are prone to accidents, too. One example is a two-toed sloth that appears to have fallen from a tree in La Cruz, Guanacaste.

The animal only infrequently travels from its tree canopy home to ground level, but neighbors said it appears that this sloth was knocked out by a fall.

The two-toed variety of sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni) can be found from northern Nicaragua into northern South America. They are creatures of the night, and are less commonly seen than their three-toed relative.

Policía de Fronteras officers offered the ailing sloth a lift to environmental workers in Liberia for recovery. Neighbors said they feared that without human involvement other animals would attack the groggy sloth, said police.

Judiciary opens an office in Puerto Jiménez on the Osa Peninsula
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The judiciary has inaugurated its new building in Puerto Jiménez on the Osa peninsula. The location is in southwestern Costa Rica and includes Parque Nacional Corcovado, a major tourist attraction.

Prosecutors, public defenders, a creditors court and judges for felonies and misdemeanors are at the new facility.

The community is on the east shore of the peninsula. In the past
 those with judicial business had to travel to Golfito, which meant a 264-kilometer road trip or a 45-minute boat ride across the Golfo Dulce, noted the Poder Judicial.

Nearly 9,000 persons living in the area will be served by the facility, which is 100 meters from the Escuela Saturnino Cedeño Cedeñ in Puerto Jiménez.

Judicial investigators will have an office there, too, the Poder Judicial noted, adding that air conditioning has been installed in the structure.
