Two capybaras escape Toronto zoo

Two capybaras escape Toronto zoo

On Tuesday, May 24, 2 newly introduced capybaras made a bold getaway from the High Park Zoo in Toronto. Throughout their crazy dash to freedom, the tropical critters left a solitary capybara in the pen, which was obviously not party to their escape plans. The tale of two hairy fugitives on the lam from Toronto's High Park Zoo has taken an unanticipated turn with the revelation they weren't a lot like Thelma and Louise, but much more like Bonnie and Clyde.

Two capybaras, gigantic rodents, are on the loose in Toronto after escaping from a local zoo and are thought to be roaming around the city. The rodents are the size of a dog. They have been described as an unshaven porker without a snout, or a beaver without a tail. Capybaras are the largest rodents in the world and stand 2 feet tall. They have little webbed feet and also, like a hippo, raised eyes on the top of their heads and a raised snout so they could see as well as take a breath while they wallow in water. The citizens of Toronto have actually been cautioned not to approach the creatures if they see them. The zoo was trying to trade their male capybara, Chewy, for a reproducing couple.

A 30 member team from different city divisions combed the locations bordering the zoo, looking for the missing herbivores-- they look like tailless beavers. They are especially looking around streams and other bodies of shallow water as this is the type of environment the capybaras favor.
