I saw a few articles today about animals fleeing the national park and figured it would be worth considering since they do have some natural instincts to leave before SHTF

From the link:
Quote:
Videos of bison seemingly fleeing Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming have sparked concerns among some bloggers that recent seismic activity could trigger the eruption of the park’s so-called supervolcano.
"fleeing Yellowstone"? They're bison. They move in herds. They, along with all sorts of other animals, routinely cross the unmarked border of the park.

"some bloggers"


Quote:
According to Epoch Times, multiple videos of such incidents have been posted online recently, one of which shows a herd of buffalo allegedly leaving the park and “running for their lives.” Although people behind the discussion acknowledge there’s no way to predict when the park’s massive volcano could erupt, they believe the reaction of the Yellowstone’s animals could signal some kind of alert.
“running for their lives”

My husband told me about this the other day and I googled and read some articles. I don't think the big one will be in our lifetime. Plenty of other weather disturbances though to keep everyone on their toes.

I'm more worried about the Cascadia Subduction Zone letting loose and causing a 9.0 quake.

I lived on an island where a volcano erupted. The local farmers told stories of how the herd animals all started coming down the mountain days before the eruption. It was a cover story for National Geographic magazine.

Bison run. They run the other direction on that same road sometimes. Sometimes you can figure out why they take off, other times it seems it's just because they can.

Reading information based on data is a lot less exciting than imagining why bison are running, and doesn't get the attention.

The video that sparked this eruption scare show the Bison running deeper into the park, not out of it.

As I mentioned, I lived on an island when a pyroclastic volcano erupted (my childhood home is now under ash). During the evacuation period, many local farmers were describing how their free range animals - goats, cows, chickens - had moved down the mountain before the eruption. I believe there was bird movement as well.

The animals sensed something was amiss before the govt. began evacuating the zone. I have heard first hand accounts of animals moving away from volcanic areas before the volcanologists/instruments detected the activity. These stories came from local farmers, as well as volcanologists.

But I have absolutely no idea about Yellowstone or about bison herds - I'd look to the volcano observatory for more information.

USGS: Volcano Hazards Program Yellowstone Volcano Observatory

Are animals leaving Yellowstone National Park?
According to the park, any animal migrations are typical for this time of year. Most of the recent videos on the internet that show running bison were filmed weeks (at least) before Sunday's earthquake. Park spokesman Al Nash discusses this and other topics in a YouTube video.
