Hi Bishop2199

As you know there have been many posts regarding unusual animal behavior here at ATS and around the internet. There's two threads from back in 2008 by Questioningall that you might find interesting.
From reading and my personal expierience "domestic pets" can behave oddly for so many reasons.
A while back we had a earthquake here in the midwest that we felt (50 miles west of Chi-town). My neighbor told me the next day that there dog had been acting up for about a week prior. Well we thought WOW, the dog knew the earthquake was coming. About a week and ahalf after the quake, they found a big snake that had gotten into the house. After they removed the snake, the dog went back to its old self. So I tend to be a little skeptical when people mention domestic animal behavior related to earthquake predictions. Now, having said that. I still think it is a very interesting subject. For centuries people have noticed unusual behavior among domestic and wild animals related to weather changes and earth changes.
I have to go to work so I can't really get too much into this. But it is very interesting. David Jay Brown did some research in southern California and from my information still monitors that area. Pam Smart is the person who contacted me with information. I really don't know that much about her but I plan to look into some of her research findings.
I hope your dogs are O.K. I know you have Timberrattlers up there, maybe check around the house to see what might be hanging around.

I am in Minnesota which is not very active with earth movements. When I checked the map this morning, I noticed that Asia and the Solomon Islands both had 6+ earthquakes and am wondering if my husky is feeling the vibrations caused by these quakes on the other side of the world or is there something big pending on this side of the world.


I'm in Christchurch and we've had over 7000 earthquakes within a year, including a 5.1 this morning. I have been interested in this phenomenon so I have been observing my four dogs and three cats and in all this time they haven't been 'precogs' in their behaviour. They are reactive after the earthquakes but exhibit no demonstrable behaviour prior to the shaking. Maybe they, like us, are just over it and exhausted?

However, I did hear of horses acting strangely before the September earthquake.

There could be a difference between urban and rural animals response?

Hey there....I am in the NW corner of Washington State. My dog has been driving me crazy the past few days. I believe I may be the one Summer5 is talking about. I've been keeping track of it on my Washington thread. Both my dogs have proven accurate in predicting quakes. My poodle for large quakes at great distances...and my smaller dog for very close (less then 30 miles) micro quakes. Their behaviors are different. My little dog will act very scared/confused and will shake and hide with very close, micro quakes. We don't get that many that close to my house here so it's been pretty amazing how accurate she is. The past few days, she has been sensing some larger (around 2.0 to 3.0) quakes a little further (about 30-35 miles) from my house. With these, she get VERY clingy...pushy actually. In-you-face-touch me/hold me pushy. She shivers a little bit (not near as much with the other smaller ones) and is very wide-eyed. Sounds a bit similar to what you are describing.

I am a firm believer in animals ability to sense these ground movements waaaaay before any instruments. I find it very fascinating and wonder just what it is, because my dog does it sometimes a few hours before they happen for the mirco ones. It tells me there is stuff happening, that is detectable, long before the energy breaks through the surface. Makes sense though.

@Puterman...thanks again, and for the link. The interference was what I was wondering about. Hadn't seen that before on this seismo. I'll have to watch for any developing pattern...maybe it's electrical.

Good Idea

I tried to put that in the Widget column at the bottom of the 7+ Blog, the text went in but not the link or the image, Wordpress can be a PITA sometimes, it must be something to do with the code "< a rel" not being compatible with my Template. I'll write my own link later.

After reading West Coast's response, I got to wondering if some types of dogs are more sensitive to the movements than others. He said his poodle is quite sensitive.

What type of dogs do you have?

Be Well.

Ridgeback X Rottweiller (see my avatar
) 2 X Lab X Spaniel and a Cocker Spaniel.

The Ridgeback just lies and doesn't respond (unless it's greater than a mag. 6 it would seem
) , the Lab X Spaniels dive under the desk/couch/bed once the shaking begins, and the Cocker Spaniel barks at the shaking. Maybe it IS because they're 'used' to them now. I don't know how they reacted prior to the September shake as I was asleep, but I didn't notice anything peculiar before I went to bed.

I think it is solar but it is dificult to pin down an exact match.Some instruments in Canada were showing highs but US ones were showing lows including Gakona, but yes electrical is a possibility as well. Not seismic anyway.

I saw that on Nrk as well, how often do those quakes happen in Norway anyways? I can remember sleeping through three of them in a row down south. I think I mentioned it earlier. Anyways, congratulations! M4 in Norway, M6.3 in Kyrgystan, they are homing in on me, oh no!

Its not common here. We had a mag 2 a couple of months ago in Hadeland. In 1986 we had a 5 in Ålesund and the biggest one in Norway was in 1819 (i think), and it was around 6. I was asleep (:mad
myself, but my boyfriend heard it and actually understood it was an earthquake even tough its VERY rare here in Norway. Very odd you ask me.

And please, ignore my crappy english

Well the quakes I experienced (or rather slept through) were near Lindesnes. But it's good you have an attentive mate. Last day we have been having some issues with the groundwater and a strange earthen scent in our bathroom. It is probably nothing, but with all the earth shifting going on around the world you never know. I am not much of a hype or doomsday person honestly.

Well, with all thats going on around the world theese days, im open to everything. I bellive we havent seen nothing yet.

This is the start of something new! Well I thought since I am (very slowly) getting down to do some of these changes I might as well place them were others can see them as well so..........

What's that Event ID and Magnitude Now?
