"Lost Sloth" fliers a prank

Knoxville, TENN. (WVLT) -- Dozens of missing pet fliers posted on U.T.'s campus are nothing more than a prank according to Freshman Michael Judkins.

He said he posted about ten fliers for a missing Capybara named "Mr. Nibblesworth", as part of a Freshman Study class.

Another flier posted presumably by another student, advertised a missing sloth named "Llamar" who was last seen in the clutches on an eagle.

Judkins said he used his own phone number on the flier, and that the only phone call he received about it came from Local 8 News.
