“Strange creature found in Cerro Azul
The finding of a strange creature in Cerro Azul has started a buzz among the locals, as even though some claim it is a being from another planet, others believe it’s merely an animal.
Four teenagers between 14 and 16 years-old found it in the Cerro Azul stream last Saturday while playing around.
According to the story told by one of them, they noticed a creature was coming out of a curve behind the water stream. On seeing its appearance and that it started to climb the rocks towards one of them, they got scared and started to throw rocks and logs at it, to which they managed to kill it, took it out of the water and fled.”
The photos were taken by the teenagers themselves and given to the newspaper. The story made it to Fark, and in a couple of hours Vidani Huff quoted a “believable, real-world explanation for this strangeness”. I didn’t want to spoil it for you, so it’s also after the jump.
Once you remember how sloths look like, it’s obvious. You can even now realize there’s still some patches of fur. I don’t think anyone shaved the poor creature, nor that the teenagers killed it: it probably died, fell into the water and what we see is an advanced stage of decaying, as the water may have helped to remove most of the fur and it’s already bloated.
I must confess I would be very impressed to see something like that. I never saw a furless sloth, and I doubt that many people saw it.
But now we have, and Farkers as well as Peter Vidani Steve Huff must be praised for quickly clarifying a poor sloth that could have easily beat Montauk Monster’s (raccoon) ass.
