WYOMING – An animal exodus at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming has residents and tourists wondering if they know something we don’t.
Bison and many other animals are leaving Yellowstone in droves, and its prompting theories that minor earthquakes in the area could soon set off the Yellowstone Super Volcano.
A series of smaller quakes have hit the region over the past few weeks, and the more earthquakes hit an area, the more chances a volcano may be activated from its dormant state.
The scientist in charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory told CNN that despite recent seismic activity, “we don’t anticipate an eruption anytime soon.”
Dan Hottle, Spokesman, Yellowstone National Park also says that the bison in this viral YouTube video were running into the park NOT away.
Still it looks pretty convincing.
The YouTube video below re-posted on March 14, 2014 shows a herd of Yellowstone National Park bison running from Mammoth Hot Springs eastward along the roadway and deeper into the park.
