Animals are reclaiming places across the globe that human beings had acquired from them hundreds of years ago. Australia is no different, where recently, a kangaroo was spotted hopping around on empty roads of the country as people are confined behind the walls of their homes. The video was shared by South Australia police who shared it with a hilarious caption calling it a suspect in a grey fur coat. According to the post, the kangaroo was spotted on the roads of Adelaide and was heading into the West Parklands.

I was told there were kangaroos in the city, before I came to this country. Love it.— Cindy Purcell (@cindybutterfly8) April 19, 2020
If only we could carry on seeing such beauty when this ends, but we will be back to filling our cities with cars, pollution and hate.— Mark Quinn (@bookmarkquinn) April 19, 2020
