When the cat’s away, the mice will play? Well, it’s the same thing with the people away.
It’s not the mice that are emboldened to show their faces in urban settings. It’s all the other wildlife.
With nobody coming and going to spook them or make them shy away, animals have been venturing into the concrete jungles… which makes for some interesting photos.
Here’s a for-instance:
In East London big numbers of deer are also taking over yards (that would be gardens in UK?) and on the streets. They’re lounging on sidewalks and munching away on greenery. COVID is giving animals an advantage finally. pic.twitter.com/3AC1YoLZdg

Most of us just see it as a novel opportunity to either enjoy wildlife or a reason to keep on our toes if we live near the domain of significant predators… bears, predatory cats, wolves, etcetera.

Naturally, some of the ‘humans ARE the virus’ crowd have been pushing their message of gloom and doom…

Meanwhile — there’s at least ONE thing that Jews and Muslims in the Middle East can agree on. The boar roaming the Jewish city of Haifa have become a bloody nuisance.
Closer to home, we’ve seen coyotes in California.
Meanwhile, photographers in Colorado have noticed a very unusual species ‘nesting’ in trees in their parks:
Yes. You DID see a cat.
Don’t mess with it.
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
