TORONTO - Former media mogul Conrad Black arrived in Canada on Friday and was spotted kissing his wife, playing with their dogs, and roaming the grounds of his sprawling Toronto estate on Friday just hours after being released from U.S. prison.

Black left a federal prison outside Miami early Friday after serving about three years for defrauding investors.

Black, whose empire once included the Chicago Sun-Times, the Daily Telegraph of London, the Jerusalem Post and small papers across the United States and Canada, had returned to prison in September to finish serving his sentence.

Black had been sentenced to more than six years in prison after his 2007 conviction in Chicago, but had then been released on bail two years later to pursue an appeal that was partially successful. A judge reduced his sentence to three years, and he returned to prison.
