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".


Stupid kids. It'd have been worth more alive... if it ever was...

Turns out it's a sloth without fur. Yeah, that's a shame. I'll bet the furlessness is something worth studying, not to mention the intrinsic value of the creature's life.
