A series of small earthquakes have hit the Yellowstone Park region over the past few weeks and have reportedly been linked to the recent 5.1 magnitude quake (and aftershocks) that hit the Los Angeles region last week.
Bloggers are posting videos that show bison and other animals allegedly fleeing Yellowstone National Park, prompting theories that earthquakes may be ramping up the seismic activity and will set off the Yellowstone supervolcano--a huge magma chamber beneath the park in Wyoming, Epoch Times reports.
Two main bloggers on the topic stress that there’s no way to know when the supervolcano will go off but note that the 4.8 magnitude earthquake that hit on March 30 seemed to set off a reaction from the animals, prompting them to run for their lives.
Turner Radio Network wrote, “Animals can often sense trouble long before humans. These Bison are coming down the hills in droves and fleeing on the road to get away from Yellowstone. Is the volcano there going to erupt?”
Tom Lupshu posted on YouTube that nearly one-quarter of the northern elk herd at Yellowstone National Park is missing, according to the annual winter count.
“Biologists aren’t sure if there’s been a stunning decline in the herd or if other factors have skewed the tally,” he said.
“Herds of bison running for their lives on the public roadways and they were not being chased or rounded up, the bison were running down the mountain slopes onto roadways running right past a filming crew,” Lupshu writes, “They detect something vast and deadly. The Yellowstone supervolcano is the only thing there that would fit the bill.”
Some commenters believe the video is a fake. What do you think?
