Humans have been expanding their feet for long time now. The growing human population has pierced into wildlife’s space, forced several animals to either distinct or disappear. Animals have suffered a lot due to the urbanization of cities. But due to corona virus outbreak, countries have locked themselves up to prevent further spread of the deadly COVID-19. The unexpected lockdown has brought human activities to a standstill. Indian government declared 21-day lockdown for entire country till 14th April 2020. Now the animals are showing up on roads in few parts of the country. People spotted many wildlife animals from their balconies and video went viral on social media soon after. People are believing, nature is claiming what once belonged to them. It was once their habitat and humans have messed their privacy by taking over their space.

In India, due to three weeks lockdown, human activities have been brought to a halt and animals are roaming freely on the road which once, belonged to them. The animals are now casually inspecting what humans have made. Since people are confined to their home, wildlife finds the roads easily accessible. Video went viral on twitter showing different animals in different parts of India. Many users said, Mother earth is rebooting itself. All thanks to non-human activities and absence of tourists, the wildlife is up and running to wherever they want.
