Reading this the other day How earthquakes can trigger copycat quakes 1000km away
Very basically, it is saying that if the frequencies are just right (and each fault has it's own frequency trigger) then distant quakes can vibrate rock particles within the fault itself , making the fauly more "slippery". Perhaps the Chile quake had just the right frequency?

I like to subscribe to the belief that animals know more about the inner workings of the world than we do. Some may laugh at me for saying this due to how often animals are hit crossing roads, but I think their sense of self-preservation is far higher than ours. Plus, I believe anyone that says their fauna's behavior is off in some way. Once you life somewhere long enough, you get to know how things work, the animals, and even able to familiarize with certain creature's daily habits. I would look into migratory paths if any of them are of the migration sort. They could be flocking and altering paths to maneuver around the wildfires.
