Wild boars

As people remain under confinement during the COVID-19 lockdown, animals have wriggled out of their habitats exploring and travelling the empty roads and parks due to reduced human activity. In one such video shared by the Indian Forest Officer Susanta Nanda on Twitter, a drove of baby swine was seen meandering carefree on the vacant streets accompanied by wild adult pigs, however, it isn’t ascertained whether for food or leisure. Susanta wrote in the caption that while the humans are in the lockdown, the wild boars were on the lookout. 

Users amused

With over 3.5k views, the 11-second clip was liked by over 365 viewers, as people were rendered shocked and amused at the same time. While some called the bunch of little wild pigs “baby pumbas”, the others agreed that the world was indeed theirs to rule at this time. “Kind of fair; humans are the intruders! We have pushed into their lands and pushed them out,” wrote a Twitter user. “Leopards must also be on a lookout for a good snack,” joked the second. “Babies day out,” wrote the third while making a laughter emoji on the video.
