Second escaped Toronto capybara finally returns home

Toronto's runaway rodents are both safely back at the High Park Zoo. That's right, city staff found the second capybara this morning after it got caught in a trap near Grenadier Pond.

After many numerous sightings around High Park, staff found one of the capybara earlier this month while its furry friend remained at large; they'll finally be reunited soon.

The massive rodents made their great escape on May 24. They eluded capture for quite some time and now they're thankfully both home safe and sound with some great stories from their time on the run.
