Is this Photo an Unknown creature, freak of nature, or Hoax?

Backcountry.com The latest photo of a monster to appear online was reportedly killed by children in Panama who were in fear for their lives. This thing crawled out of a cave like E.T. coming out of a shed, and scared teenagers pummeled it with sticks and rocks until it died. They then tossed the corpse into a nearby lake but later returned to take photos. Some think it is a sloth that lost its hair, others say it may have had its hair removed, and still others think it is legit. But it has yet to be examined by a professional. I think they found a dead sloth, soaked the animal in water that makes the hair easily removed, removed the hair and took a photo.
