An eye witness report gets no better than this. Four people were involved and a government reaction was also described. Then they were silenced.
This could be a Giant Sloth possibly a young one or even a female. We even got two separate events involved. There is a forest fire flushing animals and we have a lucky truck impact. However the hands and feet say no.
To be a chimp though it is way too large. It is twice the weight of a man and could tear you apart. That also makes it an import.
I keep thinking that he should have been able to look at both hands and feet closely which would help hugely.
