As the coronavirus pandemic leaves the world’s major cities deserted by humans, animals have been spotted enjoying the peace and quiet.

The global outbreak of the virus has seen many countries such as Spain, Italy, Japan and Chile, as well as the UK, impose a lockdown on citizens.

But mother nature is making the most of the situation, with various wild animals spotted reclaiming the streets of some of the world’s most densely populated areas.

In the north Wales seaside town of Llandudno, mountain goats were seen roaming free on the streets after coming down from the hilly grasslands of the Orme.

A local councillor told the BBC that the herd was drawn this time by the lack of people and tourists due to the COVID-19 outbreak and resulting quarantine measures.

Spotted deer were also seen wandering along a road in the city of Tirupati, in India’s populous Uttar Pradesh region, during the nation’s lockdown of 1.3 billion people.
