Bolivian firefighters rescued an anteater on Aug. 16, as they toiled to put out a blaze that’s been sweeping through different protected areas for days. The animal was found injured in a bushfire at the Sucara lake protected area and taken to a veterinarian for medical attention. “We ran into this animal. It's badly wounded and hurt so we brought it into town so these good people can tend to it," firefighter Victor Hugo Sanchez told Reuters. Inside Edition Digital’s Stephanie Officer explains.
