Therefore, Bored Panda has made you a list of instances where people have observed local wildlife reclaiming the territories of those urban areas. So scroll down below to see them all and share in the comments down below whether you have spotted an animal wandering down your street or even through your backyard!

These animals are dangerous and people are right to be very cautious around them, especially since they're likely to be feeling very bold now, what with the lack of humans.
