Ever seen ducks crossing the road in the city of lights? Or some geese strolling near Adnan Menderes Boulevard in Turkey? Well, now you can. With more than three million infections confirmed in at least 185 countries and territories, the governments around the world have imposed nation-wide lockdowns and restrictions. These measures are taken to stop the spread of coronavirus, which means far fewer people are out and about. Due to this, wildlife in some of these human-populated areas has taken advantage of the deserted streets. Let’s check out how animals are taking over the lockdown cities through photos and videos.

Wild Animals Running…Wild And Taking Over The Streets
As the many cities remain in lockdown, a lot of wild animals have reclaimed deserted streets in towns and cities around the world. As you can clearly see so many of the animals – from curious sheep to flamboyant peacocks – have come out to play. The phenomenon of animals taking over lockdown cities is due to the lack of human activity around them, while some of them have come out in search of food.
