For the past few weeks, we have all been faced with a new reality as the world attempts to put a stop to this widespread pandemic. With whole countries on lockdown and citizens everywhere urged to stay at home, once busy cities across the globe are left void of all human activity. As a result, various wild animals that tend to keep a safe distance from people, are free to roam these now empty streets.
And while reports of dolphins in Venice and wine drunk elephants in Yunnan have since been debunked, many creatures of all shapes and sizes have been spotted exploring local neighborhoods and popular city centers. Luckily some local patrons have managed to capture these animals in action and the photos speak for themselves.
