COVID-19: Animals take over the streets in various cities as people self isolate (Photos)

In many countries, people have been told to stay at home to try and stop the spread of coronavirus, which means far fewer people are out and about.

And when humans are away, the animals come out to play!

Lots of creatures, from fish and ducks to deer and monkeys, have been making appearances in places you wouldn’t normally expect to see them.

Some have come to big towns and cities in search of food, while others look like they’re making the most of their freedom with humans out of the picture.

People on lockdown have been posting on social media with stories of seeing the wild animals bolding strolling through quiet, deserted streets.

Animals like wild boars, Mountain Lions, Leopards, Monkeys have been spotted on the streets which used to be inhabited by humans.

Checkout some photos below:
