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!

I think we should close the beaches entirely, or at least a big portion of them, during their nesting time and until the babies are safely out to sea.

"there hasn't been an increase in their population since the park closure" Yes, because bears don't reproduce in one month.

Deer feed In Yosemite Valley

Deer feed In Yosemite Valley

At this time of the year, Yosemite National Park is usually packed with tourists; therefore, the animals don't usually emerge as there can "literally be walls of cars, stop-and-go traffic or people in the park," park's ranger said.
