Capybara caught by a group of men in PoS

A Capybara was caught wondering on Independence Square on Wednesday morning.

Video circulating on social media shows the animal being tied up by a group of men to have it removed from the Capital City.

There’s no word on whether or not the animal would be taken in by wild life authorities or officials at the zoo.

Capybaras are short-haired brownish rodents with blunt snouts, short legs, small ears, and almost no tail. They are shy and associate in groups along the banks of lakes and rivers. They normally feed in the morning and evening and spend most of the day resting under cover along the banks. They are vegetarian and in cultivated areas sometimes become pests by eating melons, grain, and squash.
