Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming: Could the Supervolcano which has been dormant for the past 650,000 years be ready to erupt again?
If you listen to some animal experts, that answer is a definitive "yes".
Recall, if you will, the tsunami in late 2006. Do you remember reports that animals were escaping and running for higher ground hours before the waves hit? This mass animal evacuation brought into light the instinct which biologists have known about for years which seems to tell animals when disaster is about to strike.
Fast forward to yesterday.
At Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, there is a mass animal exodus underway. Miles of buffalo can be seen running frantically from the Northwest end of the park. They are even running down roads. Elk are also evacuating at an astounding rate. Smaller animals such as rabbits and squirrels are also fleeing Yellowstone.

IMPORTANT UPDATE! WATCH THOMAS LUPSHU'S ANALYSIS
What are the animals running from?
According to one expert, Thomas Lupshu, the only possible explanation is that the seismic activity in Yellowstone which has been increasing over the past month could mean that an eruption is on the way.
This map shows the areas most affected by a potential eruption.
Let's look at what will happen if the Yellowstone Supervolcano does erupt. According to the US Geological Service, the initial eruption would immediately kill everybody and everything in the kill zone. Within a few minutes, the ash would begin to spread and would spread poisonous ash across the primary and secondary ash zones: killing agriculture in those zones for years to come. Finally, much like the Mount Saint Helens eruption in 1980, ash would spread across the planet according to the wind patterns. However, the amount of ash expected to spew from Yellowstone is an amount greater than 10,000 times that of Mount Saint Helens. This could be potentially damaging to agriculture and human life as we know it across the planet.
Not trying to be alarmist here, but you do need to research this for yourself. Here is a map released by the US Geological Service.
Could there be another reasonable explanation? Perhaps. It just hasn't been thought of yet.
To be fair, the US Geological Service says that there is no immediate danger of massive eruption in Yellowstone.
So you must ask yourself. Do you trust the geologists or the animals' instincts?
What do these animals know that we don't?
