Capybara spotted in Paso Robles

FRESNO, Calif.

/*Capybaras*/ are the world's largest rodents. They can reach the size of a small dog and are often described as a mix between a rat and a guinea pig. They're also illegal to own as a pet in California.

Capybaras are not considered predatory toward humans. Officials with the /*Department of Fish and Game*/ are hoping to catch the rodent and relocate it - to a local nonprofit animal group.
