Watch a doe-eyed CNN anchor stammer through a confused analysis of this strange beast

From the Daily Telegraph
"The beast's hairless, rubbery body and revolting features have drawn comparisons with the Montauk Monster, the still-unidentified animal photographed on a New York beach last year.

According to reports in Panama, the teenagers spotted the creature crawling out of a cave while playing in the town of Cerro Azul north of Panama City.

They returned later to take pictures of the corpse which were then posted on the website of the Central American country's Telemetro television station. . . "
