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.
