A lot of creatures have been making appearances in places we wouldn’t expect to see them. Some of them have come to towns and cities just to search for food, while some others are enjoying their freedom with humans out of the picture.
In Japan, Italy, and Thailand, people have seen animals in the streets. In Japan, deers that usually live in Nara Park were forced to escape the park and look for food in the city. This park. Normally, this park is swarming with tourists, but now the Sika deer living there is a local attraction.
What it’s not unusual, is to see monkeys on the street in Thailand, but there have been a lot more than normal about recently as they’ve been coming in search of food. The tourists who keep them well-fed are now staying away due to the coronavirus outbreak, which led to hundreds of monkeys running around the roads, fighting over scraps.
In Italy, various animals (like sheep, boars and a horse) have appeared in the streets of Italy. And in Venice, the citizens have reported seeing fish and ducks in the canals after coronavirus lockdown left the streets and famous canals empty, and that the waters now are clear as crystal.
