Wild Animals have taken over the streets in major cities because of the coronavirus pandemic

By Chris Ciaccia | Fox News

The coronavirus pandemic has left most of the world’s major cities, including London, New York and others, empty. As humans hunker down, with shelter-in-place measures around the world enacted, wild animals have started to take over.

Several pictures taken by photographers around the world show all types of mammals, including deer, goats and others roaming through the streets and communities, unabated.

In London, a herd of deer was spotted resting in a housing state in Harold Hill, Romford. Earlier this week, images of London went viral, showing what used to be bustling places, such as the London Eye, Chinatown, Borough Market and the National Gallery, completely empty.

In Nara, Japan, deer were spotted walking around a shopping area. Approximately 100 deer were seen walking around the city. They are usually fed by tourists, but they have ventured further into the city to look for food.

In Llandudno, Wales, several mountain goats were spotted roaming the streets on March 31. The goats, who occasionally visit the town to be fed by tourists, were drawn by the lack of people, a local counselor told the BBC.

Fox News previously reported that hordes of starving monkeys were spotted in the streets of Thailand, as fighting over food scraps, due to the pandemic.

Other cities have also seen an influx of animals infiltrating areas where humans once gathered in significant numbers, according to Yahoo:

  • Spotted deer were seen wandering along a road in the city of Tirupati, India.
  • Wild boars were seen throughout northern Italy, including one mother walking through empty streets with her offspring in Bergamo.
  • A number of wild boar have also been seen in parts of Paris.
  • Several puma were seen walking around the streets of Santiago, Chile, after the country’s Agricultural and Livestock Service said they came down from the mountains in search of food.

As of Friday morning, more than 1 million coronavirus cases have been diagnosed worldwide, more than 245,00 of which are in the U.S., the most impacted country on the planet.

    Permanent Pandemic on Public Lands: Welfare Sheep Ranchers and Their Enablers Hold the West’s Bighorns Hostage (excerpts)
    by KATIE FITE

    The political clout of the Woolgrowers in state Legislatures and Congress stifles agency biologists from clearly speaking about the need to permanently end domestic sheep grazing on public lands. Game agencies are locked in a cycle of hoping that domestic sheep aren’t herded too close to wild sheep where fateful intermingling occurs, and praying that young rams don’t get a whiff of domestic sheep in estrous miles away, head out towards the females, and then return back home as super spreaders carrying contagion. They content themselves with radio collaring, transplanting, re-transplanting and other wrangling as populations limp along or are extinguished.

    Its bighorn sheep murder most foul. But whodunit? The guilty often escape mention. News stories read as if the disease emerged from an alien spacecraft, mysteriously alighting in a remote mountain range to wreak havoc. The typical die-off story goes like this: Agency issues a press release or fields questions about mounting observations of sick, weak, sniffling, coughing and sneezing bighorns, or dead wild sheep are observed. Grown college educated men and women wring their hands, tiptoeing carefully around a clear explanation. If they do let slip that the BLM or the Forest Service refuse to close domestic sheep allotments too close to bighorn habitat, the guilty ranching operation remains unnamed, lest the agency invoke the wrath of the sheep baron whose herds are at fault.
