Strike first, ask questions later: that's what happened to this little white creature in Panama. A pack of children beat this mysterious creature to death, then tossed it into a river. Now we'll never know where the ring is.

A group of children near Cerro Azul saw the creature leave its cave, and suspected it of being an alien. Other observers wondered if it was a yeti — but the creature has been revealed as a shaved sloth. This revelation came too late to save the poor creature, which the children beat with sticks out of unreasoning fear. The kids then threw the corpse into the water and fled. Why must we always destroy what we don't understand?
