    Adventure Hunters Call too Arms...

    The coronavirus pandemic has left most of the world's major cities, including London, New York and others, empty. As humans hunker down, with shelter-in-place measures around the world enacted, wild animals have started to take over.

    In London, a herd of deer was spotted resting in a housing state in Harold Hill, Romford. Earlier this week, images of London went viral, showing what used to be bustling places, such as the London Eye, Chinatown, Borough Market and the National Gallery, completely empty.

    In Nara, Japan, deer were spotted walking around a shopping area. Approximately 100 deer were seen walking around the city. They are usually fed by tourists, but they have ventured further into the city to look for food.
    Other cities have also seen an influx of animals infiltrating areas where humans once gathered in significant numbers, according to Yahoo:

    Spotted deer were seen wandering along a road in the city of Tirupati, India.

    Wild boars were seen throughout northern Italy, including one mother walking through empty streets with her offspring in Bergamo.

    A number of wild boar have also been seen in parts of Paris.

    Several puma were seen walking around the streets of Santiago, Chile, after the country's Agricultural and Livestock Service said they came down from the mountains in search of food.

    hordes of starving monkeys were spotted in the streets of Thailand, as fighting over food scraps, due to the pandemic.

    The Great Orme goats ventured out farther than they normally would, Mr. Stuart, 31, said.

    The goats live in Great Orme Country Park, in Conwy, Wales. They were a gift from Queen Victoria, from the royal herd, but their descendants are wild animals that roam and forage in the large park.

    There is also hardly anyone outside in San Francisco — except for the coyotes.

    Residents in San Francisco have been under orders to practice social distancing for two weeks, leaving their homes only to buy groceries, go to pharmacies and participate in other essential tasks. The streets have been left to the coyotes, which seem to be venturing farther into the city because there are so few cars, according to Deb Campbell, a spokeswoman for San Francisco Animal Care and Control.

    “We have had a lot more reported sightings of them in the streets,” she said. “They are probably wondering where everyone went.”

    Who says we've been slow in our response to this virus. In the U. S. we have had our own training facility for living with wildlife walking through our towns. It is located in Estes Park, CO. Hundreds of thousand of humans have been trained at this location for decades.

    I’ve fed the deer in Nara, Japan. They’ll bite your ass if you don’t pass out the crackers fast enough!

    Showtime has been giving the movie Twelve Monkeys a lot of air time the last several weeks. Coincidence?

    Coyotes, bobcats and bears: Wildlife is reclaiming Yosemite National Park.

    Yosemite Village is normally a crush of humanity and traffic congestion. On Saturday, it was peaceful like few times before — the only sounds coming from the wind and the few local residents.

    A young bobcat ambled by the nearly abandoned administrative buildings, while ravens prattled and danced in the empty parking lots, and coyotes trotted along the valley's empty roads and walkways.

    Wildlife is coming out of hiding now, they said, as it did during previous government shutdowns of the park — in 1990, 1995, 2013 and 2019. The difference is that this park closure is expected to be the longest on record.

    “The bear population has quadrupled,” said Peterson, noting a surge of large megafauna into the fields, thoroughfares and open spaces of the park.

    “It’s not like they aren’t usually here,” he said of the bears, bobcats and coyotes that he and other employees now see congregating outside their cabins and apartments. “It’s that they usually hang back at the edges, or move in the shadows.”

    A healthy-looking coyote, still adorned in her winter coat, stalked and then captured a fat gray squirrel outside the entrance of Camp Curry. She grabbed the rodent by the neck, shook it and then proceeded to eat it whole, saving the tail for last.

    Are the homeless people in San Fran clearing out? Begging must be a low paying proposition these days. I live in the Rockies, so wondered what's happening with the cities. Some things never reported upon because they don't fit the media's predetermined agenda. Any city dwellers comment on wildlife displacing dumpster-divers?.......FWB

    You’ll love this. Cali SF, SD and LA are all using the Trump Bailout monopoly money to get each vagrant their own hotel room for the duration of the pandemic. Seems that all the Holiday inns Hyatt and Hilton hotels are empty…Picture What those motels will look like if they ever put the bums back on the street!

    Who remembers what happened in Detroit, Michigan as people moved to the suburbs and left the city neighborhoods to decay a few years ago?

    LONE WOLF First wolf spotted in Normandy for a CENTURY during coronavirus lockdown after once being hunted to extinction

    A WOLF is thought to have been spotted in Normandy, northern France, for the first time in a century.

    What is believed to be a grey wolf was photographed at night near France’s Channel coast.

    European grey wolves re-entered France from Italy in the 1990s after being hunted to extinction in the 1930s.

    While they have since spread across France it is the first time the animal has been spotted so far north.

    The wolf was captured on film by an automatic surveillance camera near the village of Londinières, in the Seine-Maritime department, reports

    NINTCHDBPICT000578220225.jpg

    France, Italy, Denmark, Latvia and Estonia are lobbying Brussels to allow farmers to shoot more of the animals, arguing that they threaten farming communities and livelihoods.

    Farmers are demanding the right to cull more of them to reduce attacks on livestock.

    Wolves kill thousands of sheep each year but conservationists have opposed the move.

    The agriculture ministry, which is in charge of regulating the wolf population, set the quota allowed to be killed at 17 per cent in January.
