Quick Tumblr Thread Shows Random Animals Coming Into Towns During Quarantine

There's no doubt that cities and people have changed the way animals interact with their environment. With a lot of cities urging people to stay inside, things are changing again.  For some animals, the lack of people walking around is more reason than ever to start exploring. For other animals that depend on tourists to feed them, the lack of tourists has them looking elsewhere for food. Things can change fast, it's like some junk out of I Am Legend. Different people have dealt with various quarantines differently, like tweeting funny quarantine journal updates or getting revenge on toilet paper hoarding Karens.

Apocalyptic Images From Newfoundland's Storm Of The Century

Just in case you missed it, Newfoundland was overrun by a snowstorm of epic proportions. Yes, we're talking 30 inches of snow on Friday, which was reported from St. John's International Airport. Residents have been left to quite literally dig themselves out from the storm. The Canadian Armed Forces even stepped up to help in the efforts to clear up all the snow, and help out residents in need. Outside of all that chaos, the storm definitely made for quite the array of hilarious and crazy images. Nature is a wild beast, man.

Tumblr Thread On Farm Animals Takes A Dark Turn

Some things are really better left unsaid. In this case, a seemingly fun and educational Tumblr thread on farm animals takes a dark turn when someone brings up how pigs are omnivores. And specifically, how pigs have no problem feasting on humans.

That lion was just trying to catch his Uber! Can't imagine what I would do if I was in their situation. You're just sitting there, foolishly chilling, assuming that lions can't open car doors. And then WHAM.

This idiot abroad ignored the warning signs about the ice floating away. He proceeds to get stuck on a piece of ice, float away, toss his sweatshirt into the ice cold water, and then make a terrible attempt at gracefully getting back to land. A solid fail all around.
