Default What's Happening In Yellowstone National Park?

The Bison seem to be fleeing the basin...



My Wife lived near Mount St Helen and after viewing the above video commented that the Elk did the same thing two days before Mount St Helen blew!


It seems that animals know when to bail our of an area where there could be an earthquake or volcanic eruption.


There have been many articles on a potential rise of magma below Yellowstone and predictions of a major volcanic eruption.


Should we worry?

Should we break out the tin foil and make hats?

Relax! It turns out that Obama was going to give a speech but his handlers realized they were running low on ********, so they put out an emergency call for resupply. The bison are on their way to help out.

A few years ago the magma chamber below the caldera was filling at a record rate:

http://newswise.com/articles/view/534941/


If that thing blows, it's gonna be a bad time.


But it's probably not going to erupt any time soon.

....but it might.



But it probably won't. Probably.

Meh, after watching the video in full screen, it's an obvious fake. Those are computer-generated bison, and rather poorly done too.

Look at their shadows-- nothing else has shadows because it's an overcast sky. They also don't make any noise (you'd hear those things galloping by but instead all you hear is the car's AC and no commentary).

Probably some "viral marketing" for some upcoming disaster movie?

So many curious things about that video.

First, The Turner Radio Network? Remember Ted Turner? That area out there is loaded with tree huggers that will twist and turn any event to push their agenda.

I just left that area about 2 weeks ago and there was way more snow than shown.

The bison are running uphill, back to their normal feeding grounds. Normal for the spring.

Bison migrate in that area all the time both in and out of the park.

What are the rest of the herds/birds doing?? When the critters start bugging out there a pretty good chance something is about to happen!

Meh...

Migratory animals moving towards greener pastures is not a sign of a cataclysmic event. Anyone who has been to Yellowstone this time of year sees this. Happens every year.

In the interests of diversity, Obama has issued an Executive Order to the Department of the Interior replacing 50% of the American Bison's in Yellowstone Park with African Baboons................

I didn't watch the video based on the responses to this thread but I will say it isn't worth worrying about. If Yellowstone blows it will be an "end of North America" type deal, and very possibly a human extinction event. It's not something you could escape from by moving to Europe.

Looks like you've been buffaloed.
