From sheep to elephants, many people have seen animals of all kinds roaming the streets amid lockdowns aimed to prevent further spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Some people have taken to Twitter to share pictures of the many animals exploring the streets now that humans are “out of the way.” One user even shared a video showing sheep playing on a playground near their home.

An online user even posted a video of an elephant strolling down the streets in India.
The video also captured the moment when a milkman was so startled by the animal that he left his motorcycle behind to run for his life.
Next time you visit the suburbs of Dehradun and decide to go for a ride or morning stroll, be careful, just like the bike rider in the vid !! Vid:Majri Grant Nov19 @vivek4wild @susantananda3 @elephantfamily @GargiRawat @DilipDsr @DDnews_dehradun @Dehradun_Live @dfogumla pic.twitter.com/fuYw93XwqS
