12 Wild Animals That Took Over While We’re All Forced to Stay at Home

As I sit here writing this article, I’m waiting on a “wildlife expert” to get not one, not two, but FOUR raccoons out of my fireplace that I’ve barricaded with a bookshelf. The poor little guys fell down my chimney and I’m glad I was home or else they would’ve gotten loose and probably destroyed my house.

My point is that during this lockdown, the animals have decided that they’re going to take the planet over. And it’s actually happening all over the place.

Oh, you don’t believe me? Here’s the proof.

1. Don’t get in his way.

That bear is HUGE.

2. Take a load off.

Clearly making itself at home.

3. They’re really hungry.

Are they allowed to use the drive-thru?

Even the sheep in Ebbw Vale are having McDonald's withdrawals 😂😂🐑#sorrystoreisclosed#mcdonalds

4. Don’t see that often in San Francisco.

A wily coyote…I had to say that…

5. Sheep taking over the streets in Turkey.

This is crazy!

6. Just monkeying around.

Time to take a dip.

7. Wild boars in Italy.

Wow! You don’t see this very often.

8. Turkeys in Baton Rouge.

Just seeing what’s going on in the neighborhood.

9. The pool now belongs to them.

But maybe they’d be willing to share?

10. For now, it belongs to the animals.

But the humans will be back at some point.

11. Street cow in India.

Just minding its own business.

Keep the dog away from them!

I told you! But you just didn’t want to listen, did you?!?!
