I saw this video of someone who claims to be up on a Yellowstone road recording the Bison coming down from the hills and taking the road away from the park. I know we just had a 4.8 earthquake there, and there are legends that animals know when something is about to go down. Were they fleeing because of the earthquake or is something more coming? I know it comes from disclose.tv, so I am a tad skeptical, but I find it interesting nonetheless.

Video: Bison Flee from Yellowstone

What do you guys think? A warning from our fellow animals? Or not?

ADMIN EDIT

The source video is from 11 days prior to the fear-mongering assumption of the video reposted to the source above… before any earthquakes. Bison on the road in the spring in Yellowstone is a very common occurrence every year.

It's not legends that animals pick up on this stuff...it seems to be a fact...good video is that dog the shot out of an office seconds before the earthquake started...same thing with tsunami...

Yes - there is plenty of evidence to show animals are more in tune with their surrounds than human beings are.

I think animals are fully aware of when an earthquake, or other natural disaster, is coming.

Below is the video of the dog mentioned above.

I dont think I will worry about it until Yogi Bear puts on some shorts and heads for Key West.
Doomporn fail


Sorry to rain on your NOTpocalypse...

Eta: didn't someone post this a few weeks ago? I only saw the screenshot of the vid but it looked a little off.

Also, you are right that animals (including humans) have innate triggers that react with our environment...I just dont think Jellystone Hellfiredeath National Park Is going to blow anytime soon.

Yes, a warning. Maybe not directed toward us, but one we can discern.

Story: Some years ago a tornado watch was in effect near my home. At that time I had horses, and we lived on a hillside. The house was built of straw (heh, that's in tornadic terms), so we knew it was unsafe if it got hit (like a mobile home). (Additional note: The sirens go off a LOT in this area - we are in tornado alley. Normally the animals don't pay any heed to them.)

The sirens went off - the sky turned green, and the horses started freaking out. Their paddock was just outside behind the small backyard. The alpha mare was agitated. We came outside, and she became frantic, running towards the hill as to go down, circling back to 'herd' us. Made sure everyone was present, and run we did, all of us.

We ran (yes, RAN) down the hill behind her, with the rest of the herd - by then we could hear the damned thing coming. "Freight train" they say...well, yes....think Freight Train on a PA system right next to your ear!!

We got to the bottom and I crawled under a huge downed tree in the dry-creek....
that freaking tornado missed us by only 1/2 mile. By the time it had passed, it had cut a swath half a mile wide, torn apart several well-built houses, and destroyed acres and acres of woodland. I saw it. It was a monster.

The horses knew. Always trust the animals.

I only Bison reacting? I ask cause I cant watch the video from work (I will watch later). If its only the bison, and a relitively small group, It could be anything from predator or hunter.....etc.

If it affects birds, rodents, etc etc.....then I would panic a bit perhaps. It is troublesome that this is occuring after the quake when I heard (dont quote me) that some animals sense these dangers "Before" they occur, not after... Maybe a bigger EQ coming but cant be sure....or eruption.....

Will keep watching this one for sure.

The Game Rangers at Yellowstone National Park should know if this is abnormal behavior for their Bison. If it is, and assuming the video is real and post prior quake, then something else is coming soon.

The video was posted to youtube on March 20th, before the earthquake.

Also something to note, use caution when accessing the linked website in the OP. My computer's security software blocked malware from there named "jaweydvrv.myvnc.com" USE CAUTION...


I would suggest doing a scan of your computer if you've opened that link.

The Youtube channel belongs to Turner Radio Network. Isn't that on the "Do Not Use as a source" list?

Yellowstone is a 12 hour drive due north from my place... Not close per-say but it is in the neighborhood.

Just a thought but we are expecting a couple of big storms to come through in the next couple of days.

A current DOT cam picture from Jackson Hole shows what looks like a storm coming in from the high country.


My point being they could just as easily be moving away from the storm. it's still to early in the year for them to be in the high alpine pastures anyway

There are way too many "Bison-On-The-Road-In-Yellowstone" videos on YouTube for the video in the OP to be taken as some sort of "Bison-Sign" that is warning that Yellowstone is about to explode.

OK I was able to watch the video now, I used my smart phone (Duh...smarter than me lol).

Does anyone know enough about bison to know if they normally run in a line up fashion and on pavement?!?! Really seems odd to me. However, I don't think its something like an EQ or Eruption coming.

I say this because if they were in a panic, they would be scaterring all over the hills randomly (no?) Not play " follow the leader"

Just a thought

They are herd animals. Yes, they will be "following the leader".

Although I see now some people have said the vid was older than the swarm....
maybe they are fleeing the coming storm. But herd animals submit to the alpha...their trusted leader.
They are social creatures.

I find it oddly curious that they all seem to stay in the right lane of traffic. Even in the distance you see one swerve out to pass and cut back in. Maybe road rage?

If anything I would think it a sort of migration and they have learned the road is easiest to travel and the right lane avoids head on accidents

Conservation of migratory processes is an important feature of preserving the ecological role bison play in the Greater Yellowstone area. Yellowstone bison migrate during mid- to late winter, with most animals moving to the north boundary of Yellowstone National Park in February and to the west boundary in April and early May, when vegetation begins to green up on low-elevation ranges. Natural migration back into the park follows the green-up at higher elevations and typically begins on the northern range in April, and across the central range in June.

I am currently watching 2 Yellowstone webcams and both have either bison or elk standing around grazing.

My antivirus software detected a trojan at the video linked in the OP. Better to be safe than sorry.

This has been out for a while and floating around the 'net. I've been waiting for further follow up with either more reports of strange animal migrations or behaviors in Yellowstone before I take this as anything other than a bunch of buffalo running on a road.
