A gollum emerges from Panama lake

A slimy 'gollum-like' creature was reported emerged from a cave behind a waterfall, at Panama lake near Cerro Azul. It has terrified children after it slithered out of a lake and clambered over the rocks towards them.

Locals told that the monster was like "Gollum from Lord of the Rings". But in a "desperate bid to defend themselves" four children grabbed rocks from the beach and hurled them at the beast.

Having killed it they picked up the body and tossed it back into the lake, before fleeing.

Disbelieving parents went to investigate and were amazed to see the body had washed up on the shore. It has since been picked apart by buzzards.

Melquiades Ramos, an expert at the National Environmental Authority said, he will investigate the animal.

Zoologist Jacobo Arauz said it was likely the creature was likely to be a mutation and suggested it could be a form of sloth.
