Aliens Cryptozoology Strange

Kids kill naked sloth, think it is an alien.

Back in 2009, some kids in Panama found a hairless sloth and, thinking it was “an alien,” they killed it. Ten years later and this story still bugs me.

A weird creature has stirred up controversy among the people of Cerro Azul. Some say it could be an alien, others simply believe that is an animal. …

I had to make note of it when one guy in the Fark comments brought the sorta bad news here – the Cerro Azul cryptid really looks like a shaved sloth. See above – I rotated the Cerro Azul mystery creature just so you could more easily compare body shape.

I hate being such a skeptic, but at the moment I’m thinking, man, that poor sloth. He just wanted to go full-body Brazilian, just once, and a bunch of [screw]ing teenagers go all caveman on [him].

(DailyHuff)

The claw is the giveaway. Sad. This naked sloth might have had a great life ahead of it once it got over whatever caused its fur to fall out. Below is more info about this geographic location. I’ve added links so you can learn to€ identify the creatures living around you.

Kids in Panama here are other living things around you that you should not kill because you fear them:

You may see foxes, white-faced capuchin, ant-eater, sloth, squirrels, coatimundi [hog-nosed coons, snookum bears,€  Brazilian aardvarks] , agouti, peccary [javelinas ] and white-tailed deer, howler monkey, red spider monkey, jaguar, olingo, two-toed sloth, ocelot, jagarundi [jaguarundi (Puma yagouaroundi)], harpy eagle and guan.

In addition to the stunning natural beauty of Altos de Cerro Azul, you have access to high-speed satellite internet, Direct TV and modern electricity and telephone services. Use these to figure out what stuff is so you don’t react like a bunch of savages.

The mob fear reaction completely disgusts me. We humans are sometimes a pack of stupid violent screeching monkeys gang attacking anything new in our territory. Did you know that a group of villagers in France once gathered to beat a hot air balloon to death because it appeared to them to be a supernatural monster? Strange but true. We can do better.

After the first manned hot air balloon flight, French villagers tried to attack it, thinking it a fire-breathing monster. The pilots appeased them with a bottle of champagne that they had originally brought to celebrate, and today it’s customary to carry a bottle along on balloon flights.

(CrazyFacts)

To the kids in Panama who did this, you are probably adults by now. I can only say this: I hope you never meet a real alien.

No You, all you need to know what a naked sloth looks like is to know what a sloth looks like and use your damn brain. But no, that’s something people don’t teach their kids these days, is it?

No you wouldn’t give it some lemonade and a biscuit but you sure as hell wouldn’t beat to death! No matter if its story or true its still horrible. If the kids were stupid enough to come up with this story that it had been beaten to death then they have a sick idea of cool. If they did beat it to death then they have a bad idea of what they should be afaid of. I personally belive that they lied about beating it to death and they should e punished some how but not to the extent of… Read more »

I like your theory but this creature seems to have some fur which makes it more plausible that it has some type of condition OR it has been in the water decomposing to its current state. I’m certain these kids just found it and lied.. look closely at the images and you will see no hematoma present on any visible part of this creature. If kids beat it to death there would be some evidence of that unless their weapon of choice was a pillow. The skin is pale and its abdomen seems almost bloated which is a sign of… Read more »

I Read nearly all the cruel nasty comments people wrote… Firstly, Kids Hung? HUNG? Are you F.ucking serious? Yes they were stupid and reckless but I say you could atleast blame the parents for not teaching them of self control and about Animals, Blame the teachers if you want but that’s wrong to say, only a Sick bastard would say that… Also think about the Sloth, would it want you argueing over its death? Highly likely NOT! There are so many things being harmed out there so I guess you should just stop wasting your time, Yes I feel sorry… Read more »

Like you would of ever know what a shaved sloth looks like before reading this. If you saw that I don’t think you behave much differently, maybe not kill it but report it and let someone kill it. Beside your standard moral precepts, the 10 commandments, Christianity is way too full of contradictions and edited bull[crap] to be any sort of guiding light more a source of conflict of interests.

This creature appears to be a cave dwelling addition to the sloth species. As you can see in the picture, this animal has under-developed eyes just like many other cave dwellers. It’s lack of fur is also indicative of an animal which lives in a cave. How sad is it that most people consider killing an anonymous “threat” before studying it? Violence will be the short end of humanity.

so lets say that thing was an alien as proven in the last post, its naked you dont know what it is and its moving towards you…ill give you two scenarios.1. let it come close to you and it might take your clothes off.2.beat it with sticks and stones before it gets you.You people who want to punish these kids are at least one of three things. vegetarian, wildlife person, animal welfare person or maybe just a complete and utter retard?

All you people saying that “these kids should be hung” are complete idiots. I’m sorry, but we are the dominant race on this planet, the reason you all can calmly sit and post replies on the internet in the safety of your own home, is because we humans asserted that dominance long ago by proving ourselves superior to every other animal on the planet in terms of survival. These children were merely doing what humans have been doing for thousands of years, destroying the unknown. IF the animal had been found by scientists, then fine…let it be analyzed. But it… Read more »

az , everyone knows what a tortoise is some people dont even know what a sloth is never mind a bald one. im 13 and if i saw some bald thing with claws i would have the same approach. i know you will be older than me but age isnt knowlege. i know if one of them was in your face and you didnt know what it was you would attack it.

what so if some bald thing walked towards you and made some odd noise. how would u know what it is its instinct. some odd thing , big claws , big eyes. u don t think wat type of shaved animal it could be. bah its not low on animals what we are its just that ur low on intelligence.

This is EXACTLY what I thought. These kids pulled it out of the water, or found it washed up somewhere (sloths can swim, just not remarkably well). They then decided to tell a sensational story about it to get their 15 minutes of fame. This thing looks to me like it’s been floating in the water for a week or two. (I’m a veterinarian, BTW.)

OMFGosh. Parents are not always with their kids! Stop trying to blame the parents for something their kids did.

And as for my opinion on the murder of the ‘sloth,’ oh well! It was a fight or flight situation and they chose to fight. You may have responded differently but what can you do? What’s done is done.

JaneDoe,
panicking? a sloth? a threat?
honestly,
its walking pace is so slow,
they could’ve just let it be and skampered off like good little kids,
as opposed to beating it till its death.
and even if it were an alien, they would’ve destroyed most evidence for research for the future.
so in the end,
those kids should atleast get fined for slaughtering a kind, caring and not to mention almost rare creature.

Gerard, you have a natural human emotion for caring, but does it mean you care about every single thing on this planet? No, you dont, and if you say you do your a liar!!! END OF!!! I CARE ABOUT THE SLOTH!!! SO THOSE WHO DONT, GO CHAT ABOUT FOOTBALL OR WHATERVER ELSE FLOATS YOUR BOAT! I wont be replying to anymore nit picking comments, its getting side tracked!

I completely agree. This was an incredibly cruel act. If you look at the top of the picture you’ll note there is brown fur on the body. I don’t believe this poor animal was bare as claimed. Whether it was found floating in the water and the kids pulled it out and made up a story or did beat it to death (note there’s no marks on the body indicating that) is the real question I think. Its definitely some breed of sloth, from the claw and especially from the nostrils, if they did beat it they should be fined… Read more »

Since there is no clear idea how large it is (no scale bar, of course!), it could also be an embryonic sloth that has been in a jar for years and laid out over a bunch of rocks. The whole story with the teenagers would then of course be a lie.

If it is a real creature, then it would be interesting to see if there is a link with the extinct marine sloths of the genus Thalassocnus.

@Lisa Don’t be naive. It’s really doubtful that that sloth was running towards them at all, if anything animals have the purgative to RUN from us. The truth of the matter is that those teens probably killed that sloth accidentally. I’m in highschool, and the just the other day i saw an event just like this. There were a bunch of baby ducklings stuck in the middle of the school field with their mother and resting (presumably from a long previous walk). So me and my friend were watching and doing the whole girly “wow! they are SO cute” thing.… Read more »

Some of you crack me up… After looking at it next to a normal sloth it is easy to see that it was most likely a sloth that had some sort of genetic defect. First off who the hell is going to shave a sloth and second you can look at and see it wasn’t shaved. As for the kids, so many of you are on here talking about how mean and wrong the kids where for killing it, however you seem to forget what it is like to see anything coming at you that you don’t recognized no matter… Read more »

AZ – Do you enjoy trying to sound tough on the internet? I’m going to assume that you have no logical response to what I wrote, and instead of thinking about how ludicrous your ideas are you choose to go on a tirade. Mature

“A life is a life, I would value the sloths above yours, if thats your attitude.” Hah! I love it when people contradict themselves in the same sentence. Priceless.
