I met a couple of capybaras once and they are pretty cool. Basically a giant guinea pig that loves to swim, but with more confidence as a result of being so big. But the ones I encountered were not full grown and we're accustomed to being fed by people.
A person really needs a huge pool and some vegetation to be happy, so they don't make good pets for most.
I guess Toronto is just having fun and assuming they won't leave the lake areas since they love water. Surprising that they separated after escaping. But they do need to catch it before winter because it can't survive a Canadian winter.
