    Yellowstone Bison fleeing?

    Anyone that is familiar with Yellowstone.

    Is this normal behavior for the Bison to do this?

    Fair use

    Published on Mar 20, 2014

    Animals can often sense trouble long before humans. These Bison are coming down the hills in droves and fleeing on the road to get away from Yellowstone. Is the volcano there going to erupt?

    The area to the left of the road looked steep and possibly impassable and the herd was taking the easiest way around?

    Kind of scary thinking if they are running for their lives out of the Yellowstone caldera ...

    Amazing how they were following the rules of the road.

    Wow, they aren't wasting any time. And the right side of the road, too!

    There are two herds in Yellowstone, the northern and central. They migrate out of the park near West Yellowstone every Spring.

    Hopefully, this migration does not coincide with a Yellowstone event.
    So when's the Revolution? God or Money? Choose.

    It was three days ago. I'd bet more on wolves than volcano.

    The Wolves have very little impact on Yellowstone's Bison. It's the Elk that have something to worry about.

    Animals Leaving Yellowstone? Earthquakes and Seismic Activity
    ByTom Lupshu
    Mar 23, 2014

    Nearly one quarter of the northern elk herd at Yellowstone National Park is missing, according to the annual winter count, but biologists aren't sure if there's been a stunning decline in the herd or if other factors have skewed the tally. Current Helium releases at 1000 times above normal. Complete media blackout. Herds of bison running for their lives on the public roadways and they were not being chased or rounded up, the bison were running down the mountain slopes onto roadways running right past a filming crew. They detect something vast and deadly. The Yellowstone Supervolcano is the only thing there that would fit the bill. Watch the animals and watch them close, they will always give you a heads up before an event. Very strange, is the caldera about to blow?

    If it's only the bison then I'm not worried, if it's ALL Of the animals well then I'll be booking a flight to someplace in southern Europe and pronto!

    Someone noted that they are scattered and running uphill.

    If they were just migrating they probably wouldn't be doing that?

    This does concern me, those bison are expending an awful lot of energy at a time if the year when nutritious food is at an annual low - something does not seem right here. Plus the wild animals will travel on roads as an easy walkway but not for great distances nor usually at that speed as the hard surfaces are hard on their hoofs. Wonder how far they have been running like that?

    The problem is that people keep screaming:"The wolf is coming, the wolf is coming!" so often that we never notice the coyote that is running off with the chickens.

    Man, that bison parade would have totally freaked me out. I would have turned the car around and fled with them!

    Ive seen the reports of animals fleeing Yellowstone Park. If, indeed. I sure sign of pending eruption.

    Im not sure, but I think Cayce spoke of Yellowstone erupting heralding the REAL Earth changes.

    Earth Changes

    Edgar Cayce predicted that the Great Lakes would empty into the Gulf of Mexico in the future and that ancient repositories would be discovered when people reached the appropriate level of consciousness. The three repositories mentioned are Egypt, the Bimini area, and the Yucatan.

    "The earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the east coast of America. When there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that thats almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean, and the Etna area, then we many know it has begun."

    "If there are greater activities in Vesuvius or Pelee, then the southern coast of California and the areas between Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada, we may expect, within the three months following same, inundation by the earthquakes. But these are to be more in the Southern than the Northern Hemisphere."

    "There will be the upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the torrid areas, and there will be the shifting then of the poles -- so that where there has been those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will beco

    The 1st copy of this video, according to a google search, was actually dated Mar 16, so it has been even longer.

    BTW, if you google this and find the 1st video from Mar 16, you'll notice that the person taking the video is not surprised at all by this behavior.

    The buffalo could be running from wolves, and bears (the grizzlies and black bears) are coming out of hibernation this happens quite often, there are a lot of wolves and bears there.

    The wolves have killed the elk and the moose but the biologists don't want to admit that. One elk herd has gone for 20,000 animals to a little over 2,000 elk, the wolves are wiping out the big game herds.
    Some people are only alive because there are laws against killing them.

    These wouldn't be, by any chance, some of the wolves the federal government decided to re-introduce into the ecosystem, would they?

    this is from last year .... same behavior by the bison in running on the right side of the

    road .........think the bison went to traffic school?

    Buffalo stampede leaves bikers in Illinois terrified

    Amateur video shows a herd of buffalo stampeding past a group of bikers on a rural road in the US Midwest.


    5:00PM BST 16 Aug 2013

    Most motorcyclists are used to encountering a range hazards on the road, from wet leaves to distracted car drivers, but few have found themselves in the middle of a stampede.

    Amateur video from rural Illinois shows a group of bikers forced to shelter at the side of the road as a group of buffalo charge down the road.

    The animals, also know as American Bison, can weigh between 700 and 2200lbs and move at up to 40mph.

    BTW, notice at the end in the 1st video a bison is just cresting the slope from where the others came from? there is always someone bringing up the rear, eh?

    We were in Yellowstone last June and saw a large heard travelling on the road 2 days in a row. But they were walking slowly. Definitely not running as this video clearly shows. Something's up to spook them like this.

    Before we throw this in unexplained (because it may be explained) is one: establish do they do this frequently (maybe not every year but say ever few years?) also are other animals in the area acting strangely or as my Native Elder Friend says:

    "The tribal people said that when the tame ones become wild and run off and the wild ones act as if they are tame and enter the village, it is likely an earthquake [or similar natural issue] is about to happen."

    We were talking about earthquakes but he said it can also happen with forest fires, volcanoes, violent storms sensed from hundreds of miles away etc- but the domestic animals running away and wild animals entering the living areas of humans and sometimes even allowing themselves to be touched etc; that is a huge, freeking warning sign that something is up.

    Black Bears do not kill Bison. They aren't nearly big nor powerful enough. Furthermore, the number of Moose in the park is on the increase. Get your facts straight.

    That looks like the Lamar Valley. When I was there a couple of years ago they were all in the road like that. But they were not running like that.

    There may be many reasons for the bison running down the road. But I personally find it disturbing. I am a St. Helens survivor and the Elk just poured off the mtn prior to the eruptions. So did the birds and other animals. But the elk were the most noticeable. I find this very scary.

    Bison are herd animals. The ones at the end will run to catch up to the leaders in the front ... especially when they are all strung out like that. We've been to Yellowstone numerous times and it just didn't look that freaky to me, I've personally witnessed the same behavior. When a buffalo looks like they are running late for an appointment it behooves everyone else to get out of their way.

    Keep in mind that not every eruption at Yellowstone was a caldera event. It has more "normal" volcanic eruptions than regionally disasterous ones. Even if this behavior was related to magma movements underground, it doesn't automatically mean TEOTWAWKI.

    Who knows. Seems to me I have read about the Bison migrating out of the park many times before. Like someone else mentioned, what about all the other animals. Are they evacuating also? I read Cayce years ago, and if I remember correctly, all these Earth change predictions were to occur between 1958 and 1998. Didn't happen.

    THANK YOU---I find a first-person account like that more valuable than anything else I've read here.

    I also remember the elephants FLEEING the coast and stampeding uncontrollably into the hills just before that big tsunami hit in the Philippines (?) some years back---I remember reading one of the driver's life was saved that way as he could not control his beast and could only hang onto its back as it stampeded away--and it got him high up enough to be out of danger....

    Short video of a normal Bison migration.

    Fair use

    Uploaded on Sep 19, 2011

    Almost got trapped in the middle of bison migration in Hayden Valley - Yellowstone National Park. As I was taking pictures, part of the large herd was actually right next to me and behind me - and they started coming down my way. Had to filmed them really quickly - then skedaddle to a different pull out!

    Black Bears are veracious hunters. They kill bison but not the adults. They kill the new born at night. They are excellent night hunters and the bison hide their new born and graze. Black bears hunt by smell and nail them. I had to learn this lesson the hard wallet way. Same with elk calves. It is not unusual to see a herd of bison take off running. The lead cow gets the feeling to take off and the rest will follow rapidly. Sometimes it is a predator but could be the smell of new grass or the need for water or mineral. The herd instinct in bison over bears all others.

    Neither Black Bears or Grizzly Bears are "voracious hunters." The vast majority of their diet isn't even meat and when the do eat it it's usually carrion not something they kill themselves. The only exception is bears feeding on migrating salmon to fatten up for the winter.

    I remember reading somewhere about the huge buffalo herds migrating, & they could be heard running for miles around. Could just be doing what their ancestors have done for thousands of years.
    Job5:20: In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.

    Ps.91: 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

    I had been in the bison business since the 80's. I have personally witnessed their ability to consume meat. They will eat everything but the hind hoofs. Don't know why? They are basically a noise full of teeth. Nice canine teeth that just don't eat berries. The last black bear to attack my herd put them 6 miles to the east. It was a mess. I called the warden and we measured a 7" paw print. That is huge for a Black Bear. He gave me permission to shoot to protect my stock and then tried to give me some rubber bullets. I immediately ask him if I looked liked someone who would use rubber bullets? My neighbor lost a 600 lb. steer to a black bear. One swipe across the neck and it was over. Just ate the soft organs and moved on. The state investigated and paid him for the kill. A neighbor while guiding an elk hunt next to us witnessed a black bear with two cubs jump from ambush and take down a cow elk. That one just taught her cubs how to do it. Another neighbor saw a black bear while on a walk more than half mile away to his right. He kept walking and the bear ambushed him down the trail knocking him out. His dog kept the bear at bay while he regained his senses. Another young man to the north of us had his head taken off with one swipe from a black bear. When the wardens arrived there where other bears eating the remains. While working in Alaska it was not uncommon for Grizzlies in the spring to gorge themselves on Caribou calves. Had a friend shoot a big Grizz on a hunt and he was full of caribou calves. No my friend you can believe what you want, for my part I will conduct myself according to what I have witnessed. Forgot to mention the video posted on TB last year about the bear chasing a bison down the road and off into the woods. The bison got away in the woods but had burned itself in a hot spring. Park officials said they put the bison down. They are predators of opportunity. Maybe yours eat berries but ours have moved on.

    That's because they are American Buffalo. British buffaloes run on the left side.
