The Animals Taking Over Cities While The World Is In Lockdown

With more than 200 countries affected by coronavirus (at the time of writing), governments around the world have imposed lockdown measures and advised citizens to stay indoors as much as possible.

From defiant deer to inquisitive goats and flamboyant peacocks, here are the animals making the most of empty streets and deserted squares.
