“Shelter in place” got you down? Hey, how about we look on the bright side of this whole Coronavirus / quarantine / shelter-in-place thing?

Staying at home with some free time on my hands got me thinking about how much better the world would be for the animals if humans would just stay home all the time?? Fewer cars on the road means fewer dogs, cats, bunnies, squirrels, snakes, etc. would get run over and killed. Birds in urban areas would be nesting in peace rather than traffic and noise. There would be less trash which means critters wouldn’t be feeding off it. We have taken so much from the animals and used up so many natural resources for centuries. How about, for once, we put aside our selfish needs and wants and give the land back to the animals so they can thrive again? I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

So if you think about this, perhaps you’ll feel better about this whole “shelter in place” scare, and know that wildlife is given a second chance that doesn’t require you to do anything at all.
