Animals Are Taking Over As People Quarantine At Home

These are some very difficult times. None of us has ever really dealt with anything like this before, so it’s so hard to know how to feel, and with no real end in sight, it can get a little hopeless.

But, in these trying times, there is something kind of interesting that’s happening, and that’s animals slowly taking over places that are usually full of people.

They Look So Comfy

These peaceful, sleepy deer were gathered on the lawn of some apartment complexes in London, England. Deer aren’t that uncommon, but it isn’t normal to see them all out like this.

That’s One Way To Make Sure People Stay Inside

Imagine what it would be like to open your door for a bit of fresh air and to see these two beautiful mountain lions strolling across your front lawn? Well, that’s become the reality in Boulder, Colorado.

It Looks Like Something From A Fairy Tale

Since it’s been so quiet, this sweet little fox decided it was safe for him to come out and take a nice warm nap in the sun. I would love to see a little fox outside my window.

What A Sight To See!

With the tourists gone, there is another kind of visitor checking out the Golden Gate Bridge. This beautiful coyote was captured on film by someone driving by. Don’t worry, they took the picture from inside their car.

These Goats Are Snacking

A whole herd of mountain goats made its way into a little village in Wales, stopping to snack on gardens and enjoy the lack of traffic as they strolled the streets.

Someone Is Soaking Up The Sun

This lovely little seal is spending some time relaxing by the river in a small town in Spain. It must be nice to have all that quiet in the streets while you’re trying to nap.

This Is A Special Sighting

This cute little critter is a Malabar civet, a critically endangered animal that hasn’t been since in the wild since 1990. It’s wonderful to know they’re still out there and that there is hope for their species.

These Monkeys Are Missing The People

The monkeys on the streets of Thailand used to heavily rely on tourists to be fed and entertained, but now that tourists are nowhere to be found, they’re struggling a little bit.

Look How Cute They Are

These deer in Nara, Japan, are no strangers to humans, but they usually spend their time hidden away waiting for people to approach them in parks. Now, they’re venturing out and exploring on their own.

Look At Them Getting Their Excercise

These beautiful lambs decided that since the playground was free, they might as well take it for a spin. And why not? Better it be used than not, right? They look like they’re having fun.

Italy Has Some New Kinds Of Tourist

After only three days of lockdown, this mama boar felt brave and took her babies into town to see if they could rustle up some grub. You can barely see them hiding behind mom.

A Random Horse Also Appeared

There are wild horses in the area, but it could also just be a neighborhood pet on the loose taking a look around town. Let’s hope either way they found their way home.

Someone’s A Little Overdressed

Peacocks have been roaming the streets of Mumbai since people have been spending more time indoors. These peacocks have taken to dominating living complexes, and let’s face it, birds can be a bit scary.

How About A Round Of Golf?

These adorable capybaras are taking over a golf course in Bolivia. It’s been counted that there are close to 40 of them taking in those green hills and man-made ponds.

Those Turkeys Are Taking Over

This couple of wild turkeys has decided the elementary schoolyard is going to be their new home. It’s always shocking to see how big these wild turkeys are in real life.

I’ve Never Even Heard Of A Nilgai

Nilgai are a kind of antelope found in Asia. They’re the biggest in the area and almost never seen in densely populated areas like the middle of a city street!

Just Taking An Afternoon Stroll

These bison do see people from time to time, but not this up-close and personal. It’s probably a good idea for everyone to give each other space, because people and bison can be unpredictable.

Someone Looks Cozy

It makes sense that if you leave your things alone for a little bit, the animals are going to move in. Like this beautiful little dove who has just made herself seem at home.

Just Some Camels On The Beach

This cute but slightly blurry shot shows us a herd of camels taking it easy on the beach, just taking in the sun and enjoying the cool waves to escape the heat.

It’s Blurry, But Those Are Some Happy Turtles

Since there aren’t people around taking up space and leaving a huge mess on the beach, the turtles are free to come to shore and lay their eggs in peace.
