The Mystery Beast

QUOTE (The Sun)
TERRIFIED locals in a South American town are running scared after a strange creature they describe as "Gollum" crawled out of a lake and charged schoolkids.

The beast — which has "sparked fear and confusion" in the small town of Cerro Azul, Panama — was spotted on Saturday when four 14 to 16-year-olds were playing by the waterfront.

According to their account, reported by Panamanian news service Telemetro, the youngsters "screamed" when the five-foot creature emerged from a cave and started clambouring over rocks towards them "as if to attack them".

Weird ... the slimy beast

Weird ... the slimy beast

In a "desperate bid to defend themselves" the four terrified boys said they hurled rocks at the strange creature to kill it, before throwing its corpse in the water and running away.

Their disbelieving parents returned to the lake the following day — and were stunned to discovered the beast's body washed up on the shore.

Experts have yet to examine the images — or make any statements regarding their discovery.

But locals told Panama news channels, who ran the story, that the water-monster was "Gollum from Lord of the Rings".

One said: "I have only seen that creature once before - and it was in the Tolkien film."

The fictional Gollum — originally known as Smeagol — was a hobbit whose later name was derived from the "disgusting gurgling, choking cough he made".

JRR Tolkien — who wrote the Middle Earth adventures — said of the character: "He had become deformed and twisted in both body and mind by the corruption of the Ring.

"His only desire was to possess the Ring which had enslaved him, and he pursued it for many years after he lost it."



Opinions? Is it fake or is it real? All that hoo har.

Can't be a sloth; they have a slightly pointed nose. This 'creature' has just two nostrils. It's difficult to comment how real this is. Perhaps, we'll have a clear picture after the experts have examined it.

That looks more like it. I didn't think of it embryo-wise; I was thinking only about full grown sloths.

And once again, the sharp sleuths of GTAF unravel the dark mystery of the Gollum of Panama. Case closed.

Jeez, that's a pretty creepy story, but then again, it's from the Sun, and anything said by them has to be taken with a grain of salt.

Well the journalist must have ben trying to reach the maximum word count for The Sun of about 300 words. Don't trust the Sun on this sort of stuff, they'll print this sensationalist story then neglect to reveal later , even in a tiny article, that it was later found to be the body of an escaped sloth that was mutilated by its time in the water... or whatever it turns out to be. Whatever it is i reckon it just washed up on the shore and the kids are bullsh*tting/scared and elaborating unintentioanlly.

Clearly this is fake. Gollum perished when it fell into the fires of Mount Doom in pursuit of the Ring.

It's probably just a local hermit who changed a bit too much whilst living in the wilderness.

Odd, indeed.

But this is The Sun we're dealing with.

I would have guessed other news networks would have documented this. Have they?

That looks a lot like the "Montauk Monster," which turned out to be a raccoon.

Ladies and Gentlemen sources say this was an shaved Sloth that was heavily beat down by some kids with sticks.
Case Closed
Poor Sloth never had a chance, when are we going to stop Sloth on Sloth violence ...when?

The clue is the claw.

Probably some 5ft retard who crawled into a swamp and then out again - only to be murdered by a bunch of kids and his corpse thrown back.
Parents trying to excuse this with "he was a monster" BS.

Or just a bald sloth...
