Capybaras live wild in South America, and are not normally seen in the United States outside of zoos. However, at least one of the giant rodents is believed to living a feral existence in Los Angeles. A worker at a waste water treatment facility in the city recently photographed what appears to be a capybara wandering around the complex. The animal may be the same one that a couple of years ago frightened horses by eating their hay and then chased a man's dog until he scared it away with a gun.
The authorities have decided to leave the capybara be, as the sensible animal does not seem to be causing any trouble or to be in obvious trouble himself. A number of theories are circulating as to how the furry fellow found himself living wild in Los Angeles.
