The Bonnie And Clyde Reunion

You should all love your job as much as Team Capybara loves theirs.

picture dayFor Picture Day this week, I’m not going to use one of my own shitty photos to gush endlessly about.  Instead, you get someone else’s shitty photo that wound up in the latest, and we’d suspect final CBC News article chronicling the fascinating tale of two Canadian capybaras who decided they didn’t want to have to get freaky in front of a whole bunch of High Park Zoo patrons and made a daring escape during a botched pen exchange in May.  There’s the capybara above who has been missing for over a month now… which could be Bonnie or Clyde.  Apparently Team Capybara is still too busy taking self-promotional pictures of themselves to bother with a thing like looking for rodent genitalia…

It only took up five weeks to find a giant, dog sized rodent running loose in a park!  We're awesome!

Yeah… eat, drink and be merry, Team Capybara.  For tomorrow, you will find yourselves all out of a job now that every wild capybara in the state nation of Canada hasbeen captured.  Well, I guess you can continue doing your fine work making the raccoon an extinct species in Toronto with your vast array of non-capybara catching booby traps that are still lying about maiming innocent squirrels and children…

There you have it… a short but bittersweet Wednesday post updating the Bonnie and Clyde story that was only half told when I featured it a couple weeks ago.  While we are happy the two lovebaras will spend an eternity together making the next generation of High Park capybaras… I still wonder what poor Chewy thinks about getting thrown out of his home for what will be a second time now to make room for the reunited couple…

I hope they catch my crabs.

  1. how bad that they ended behind bars again… we had a roo on the run once, it caused a lot of mischief… or better the people caused it, they drove into road ditches or hit trees while watching the roo next to the road…

    • I guess if I saw a kangaroo hopping down the road, it’d be impossible for me to not take a look at it. Heck, who am I kidding, I have to gawk at the roadkill to try and figure out what it used to be…

    Now he’s a little big… almost my size! Squeals and runs for cover. XOXO – Bacon

    I bet he would get along well with my dogs.

    I am glad Bonnie and Clyde are reunited but sad that it’s in captivity. I was hoping the one on the loose would break the other free and they would populate all of North America with capybaras.

  5. ody & biskit…can ya imagine de storeez…bonnie/////clyde……will be tellin everee one bak at de zoo 🙂

  6. You mean Petco doesn’t sell capybara food by the crate? Darn! If food is tough to come by I’ll cross “capybara” off my Christmas wish list……………..


    • You’d think they’d sell capybara food everywhere, but they don’t. I don’t know where the zoo gets theirs, but that’s obviously the only reason capybaras aren’t as common as cats and dogs in American households…

  7. Trust me – the squirrel and raccoon population continue to thrive! The raccoon in my neighbourhood is the same size as that capybara! 😉

  8. Your capybara theme is inspirational. Each post leaves me wanting more. This time I was inspired to Google “Squirrel riding a capybara.” I encourage you to do the same… you might be surprised by what you get. 😉

    • I found a bunch of squirrel monkeys riding capybaras… and a little further down, a couple of baras doing the circle of life thing. I was kinda disappointed nothing from my blog came up… how many places on the internet are known for both squirrels and capybaras?

      BTW, it’s been three years since I first tickled you muse, but I’ll bet a crocheted capybara would be awesome!

      • I was thinking a crochet capybara too… For the sparkle ponies to ride! I just thought all those monkeys riding capybaras was too funny. The capybaras look like they could care less. Capybara bus drivers! It won’t be long before Google gets wise to your theme. Soon you will be the home of evil Capybaras AND Squirrels. I’ve already used the word capybara like 20 times. Hope that helps put you in the rankings!

  9. Capybaras are rather pleasant animals and pretty smart. My former sister-in-law raised a whole litter of them in her bathtub (they were orphaned). They had to move to more spacious facilities pretty quickly, but they were a really cute bunch of gigantic rats … although they really remind me of beavers with that square muzzle.

    We should all be of good cheer. I’m pretty sure they couldn’t have survived in the wild, not in North America … though … you never know. Maybe they could learn to eat gypsy caterpillars …

    • I’ll bet the rodent in capybaras would love to chow down on caterpillars, and those big bodies have to house big stomachs. Maybe it’s time to introduce another non-native species to your area…

    I’m glad they’re both okay! I was worried the one that was still on the loose was smeared all over a road somewhere.

    Yay! True love has found a way! ❤ ❤ <3. The Capybaras as mentioned on Evil Squirrel Nest Blog has been found and is safe.Everyone is happy except Chewy. But wait there is more. Soon Chewy will have a whole new generation of Capybaras on his lawn. LOL! (see what I did there?)

    • Grumpy Old Chewy would make a fine reality show, watching him deal with his neighbors Bonnie, Clyde and family! Team Capybara could be there to offer up witty commentary, as well as the occasional, obligatory thumbs up selfie….
