    Two Capybara have escaped the small High Park Zoo in Toronto, and are currently lost in the park...

    Lol watching the morning news and it seems to be entertaining the anchors immensely. They keep bringing them up and tying them to any story that its not offensive to add them too.

    Hopefully they are found safe and sound soon.

    This isn't all that fun anymore. It's just sad.

    Yep I would agree with you fully there. I enjoyed to fun articles at first. Now its just disappointing they haven't been found yet. It's really only a matter of time before something finds and kills both of them or they get hit by a car. Or will they be on the loose still come winter and freeze to death?

    I'm quite surprised they haven't been able to catch them yet. Surely they would be relatively easy to find in the Park, and then an experienced marksman could tranq them?

    Apparently capybaras are smarter than people or at least the people trying to catch these two. It's just embarrassing now that they are still on the loose.

    Not surprising really. It went on far longer than it should have. And when they were spotted, they took forever to get on the scene.
