I find this interesting. I too have experienced strange calmness lately in wild animals, and so has my friend.
The first incident, and probably the most wild, was on a road trip to Illinois two years ago. We were in the middle of the wilds and my friend went
walking down the road for a smoke break at about 2:00 AM and he was gone for awhile so I took a walk to find him. As I approach down the road, he was
standing about 2 feet away from a deer in the middle of the road, the two just staring at each other. The animal stood there for a good while as he
got a little closer until finally it ran away. Being a hunter my entire life - that was the first time I've ever seen anything like that.
Since then, back home in PA, the animals have indeed been noticeably like mentioned in this topic. The birds do not move for cars. I have gotten to
the point where I do slow down now because I have almost hit them on a number of occasions.
Squirrels and chipmunks in my area will come around and eat right next to us. We've never fed them or anything, they are wild and we are in the
woods. Same with birds. We have a feeder outside the door and they used to fly whenever we stepped outside, but not they just sit there whenever we
exit. I can get within 4 feet of them.
Two days ago there was a toad sitting on my porch. Instead of hopping away like most toads, he just say there. I reached down and touched his head and
he didn't give a damn in the world. I shrugged and though nothing of it and let him get back to eating bugs.
Yesterday, a chipmunk was eating outside on the desk. Had to go outside about three feet away from him for something, he just kept eating and stuff
his face. I looked over at him and he just stared back, not a care in the world, and stayed there until I went inside.
They are acting almost like the governments of the world - they just don't care anymore.
