Sightings of the furry fugitives — dubbed Bonnie and Clyde by their now massive Twitter audience — have increased in recent days.

Friday morning, a CBC News camera captured one of the capybaras in a forested area at the southeast corner of the park, where the rodent proceeded to go for a swim in a catchment pond.
