The coronavirus pandemic is something that we have never expected to happen and it happens in the whole world and this is the first time as human race we have become one. These times are test of our humanity and solidarity and a reminder of the importance of family, community, and environment.
It seems that the environment has benefited a lot from this pandemic, in many parts of the world the skies have become clearer and bluer. But, also the animal world has started to enjoy some forbidden places on the planet like our streets. Due to the imposed quarantine by many governments the streets are now empty and animals started to move freely along the empty streets.
Namely, in Japan, deer from Nara Park have been wandering in order to find some food. The main reason for that was that these animals were largely fed by the tourists and since there are no tourists anymore their treats are gone. The locals were surprised when they saw deer on the streets looking for some food.
Here it is what one Twitter user wrote:
“On the morning of 2 March, for the first time in my 30 years of living here, there are deer at Nara Station, two kilometers away from Nara Park. There are no tourists to feed them rice crackers so they’ve ventured far away for breakfast. Please come to Nara and feed rice crackers to the deer!”
This behavior of animals was also seen in other countries like in Italy where sheep, boars and a horse were wandering the streets on a city plaza in Lopburi, and in Thailand many starving monkeys were also looking for food.
Animals have taken our streets, it seems Nature fights back.
