25 Times People Couldn’t Escape Mother Nature and Didn’t Even Want To

With the ever-growing development of cities and our influence on nature, animals are forced to learn how to traverse our concrete jungles. Studies show that animals living in urban areas adapt to their new surroundings extremely fast. They have to live along with humans, sometimes interact with them, and even peek inside their neighbors’ home to say hello.

Bright Side adores the relationships between humans and wildlife, so we collected 25 photos from people who managed to bond with nature in unexpected ways.
