Officials in the Los Angeles town of Paso Robles will be setting up live traps for the world's large rodents. Capybaras aren't dangerous toward humans, but they are considered wild animals who can carry diseases.
Lt. Todd Tognazzini says:
"Like any wild animal, they’re going to defend themselves, so we wouldn’t want anybody to get close to it.
Somebody probably brought it in as a pet and they either got away or people couldn’t deal with it anymore."
The last capybara spotting was when a man saw the rodent while feeding his horses. The capybara ate some hay, then chased after his dog. He fired a shotgun at the animal to protect his dog and then called wildlife officials after it left the property. When wardens came out to his home, there were footprints at the scene, but no sight of the capybara.
We don't know what we'd do if we see one of these things go running by! They seem harmless, but it's probably for the best to get them under control before they do harm any house pets.
There is nothing funnier than grown men screaming when a rat runs into the room!
Here’s what happened: A rodent (some say rat, others mouse) ran into the prestigious Reebok Sports Club in NYC Tuesday morning. Then, a bunch of NAKED men (reportedly) jumped up on the benches and started screaming.
The club manager said that he took immediate action to eliminate the problem.
Ohio mom Jennifer Aker opened a can of Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and Meatballs to find a whole different kind of meat!
A dead rodent was found inside the can and her nephew Daniel filmed it for the manufacturer ConAgra Foods. A spokesman for ConAgra said:
"We take all consumer inquiries seriously, and when a consumer has a bad experience, we work with them to determine the source of the problem and correct it. We also work with them to make up for their experience as best as we are able."
Sounds like they're about to ca$$$h in because of their little friend, but is it legit or did they plant it in there?
