Nature Takes Back World’s Empty City Streets

Paris (AFP) – As humans retreat into their homes as more and more countries go under coronavirus lockdown, wild animals are slipping cover to explore the empty streets of some of our biggest cities.

Wild boar have descended from the hills around Barcelona while sika deer are nosing their way around the deserted metro stations of Nara, Japan.

Indian social media has gone wild about footage of a stag scampering through Dehradun, the capital of the northern state of Uttarakhand.

Gangs of wild turkeys have been strutting the streets of Oakland, California, while a puma turned up in the centre of the Chilean capital Santiago, which is under curfew. read more

  3. Coyotes that eat Canadian geese are my favorite, Benito. I used to live in a place that had lots of both and I always wanted to raise a coyote pup. The species is spectacular and get such a bad rap.

  4. People may want to stop letting their cats run free outside. Cats will complain but they will survive. Something to think about.

  5. Next thing you know, humans will be displacing animals in the countryside.

    The animals taking over our shit-hole cities will be horrified when they learn about the democrats who run them.

  7. Future, foaming-at-the-mouth zombie, JDHasty.

    In my travels around Snohomish County, Washington this weekend, I saw growing* groups of ‘homeless’ congregating on street corners. Largest crowd was about 8 zombies, all youngish with backpacks, dirty clothes, long hair, beards, and that unmistakable scuz look.

    If the SHTF, there will no doubt be home invasions as they seek money for drugs, food, guns, etc.

    * Been noticing them for about a week now.

  8. Actually, comte to think of it, when I went to my library, many regulars here would probably enjoy much of the books that J Frank wrote.

    Many of the originals are ungodly expensive now, but most have been republished and are quite affordable. Sometimes I quiver at what my heirs might do with my library that many of the volumes have appreciated exponentially in value in since I acquired them

  9. Yeah, coyotes are just loads of fun when you make a living in the livestock trade. Nothing like finding 10% left of a newborn calf to make your day.

  10. This is news??
    Animals have been terrorizing the streets of every major city for a couple of decades now.

    It’s called The Wilding and has been regularly documented by Colin Flaherty.
