Every 700,000 years it erupts. Could be any minute now.

LOL.... Just has to happen once... Our volcano was asleep for 500 years and "harmless" when we bought our house. But it was just a baby volcano compared to Yellowstone. But I will never trust a dormant volcano again!

It looks like the Yellowstone animal movement is just normal migration path.

When Yellowstone erupts, it really won't make much difference what the animals did or what the people did, it will be one of those nature starting over events.

It IS spring... this is the time when everything starts waking up in the Rockies and moving around. Buffalo spook fairly easy too... it doesn't take much to get them "running like hell".

I saw a video of a herd of elk running away from there. They were jumping the fence. The poor little thinks looked so scared. LOL. There was big 4.8 magnitude at yellowstone earthquake a month ago, the largest since the 80s. Isn't that what happened at Mt. St. Helen's? They had a huge earthquake and then the thing erupted? I wouldn't listen to those "dis-info agents". Whenever you see a huge herd of animals running away from nature, something is about to go down.

I am so fascinated by geology and nature. I should have gone to school for something in that field.

Animals fleeing Yellowstone spark fears of volcanic eruption ? RT USA
Yes it is about to blow, have you ordered survival seeds and gold from glen beck yet?

Are you sure that's what you saw? How do you know they were running "away from the park", and not just running around in it? Like animals do. Because that's a pretty big park.

Or for that matter, how do you know for sure they were anywhere near the park? Other than that was what the person who posted the video said...

Yes, about 3 seconds after the earthquake. The earthquake caused the side of the mountain to collapse, releasing the gases and magma that were trapped inside it (it was a little more complicated than that, but that's the simple version.)

At any rate, the Mt. St. Helens eruption was a totally different set of circumstances, no similarity at all to Yellowstone. An earthquake at Yellowstone would not actually trigger an eruption the way one did at Mt. St. Helen, but it could signal the beginning of one. When the Yellowstone Caldera blows again - and it will blow again - there will almost certainly be very large earthquakes immediately before it goes, as the top of the caldera fractures and magma moves rapidly into the voids. There may be a period of several months (or even years) prior to the eruption where earthquake activity increases greatly as the magma chamber fills, and this may actually be what's happening now.

But we don't know that yet, and all these animal videos don't mean these recent earthquakes are any more significant than a normal cyclical uptick in seismic activity. Yellowstone is very, very ancient, and we simply haven't been keeping records long enough to know what is and is not normal.

Excellent advice!

What exactly constitutes "running away from nature?" Animals run all the time. That's what they do. In most cases, it doesn't mean anything more than that they suddenly decided they wanted to be someplace other than where they were. There's no reason to believe that all these videos of animals running around in Yellowstone are anything more than videos of animals running around in Yellowstone.

I get the sense that a lot of people who watched a National Geographic special are going to be very disappointed when the Yellowstone caldera erupts and it isn't anything even remotely like the movie Armageddon.

It's at least 1000 times more likely that the elk were running from a wolf, bear or even a coyote than from an earthquake or volcano. And the bison in that now-famous video were running INTO the Park, not out of it. We tell them and tell them where they're supposed to stay, but they just ignore us.

I can't speak for the various animals running in perceived response to the many hundreds of tremors albeit low seismic 1.5-1.5 quakes or the sulphur kills of bison and elk . Yellowstone is the largest volcano in the world with the largest magma chamber in the world . If it erupts it could literally blow the park cap off for hundreds of square miles . The ash would be the biggest threat to life on earth . Projections show it will wipe out a minimum of 11 states killing most people and animals within 200 miles of the epicenter,provoking a nuclear winter worldwide, destroying most crops burying many states in 2-4 ft of hot ash, The US would be literally on fire and in short it might be the reason we are not in bible prophecy? It doesn't matter because peripheral states not destroyed will not be prepared and survival will be extremely difficult . The mantle protection is eroding the park is bulging and life as we know it will be a hardship few of us affluenz'a can fathom or prepare for. Throw your parachute bracelets away....please.
