Footage appears to show bison and other animals in an exodus from the park causing a number of bloggers to speculate this could mean the volcano is about to explode, The Epoch Times reports.
The authors say that an earthquake that hit the area on 30 March appeared to have sent the animals scurrying for safety, and that this is could spell disaster for the volcano, which last erupted 640,000 years ago.

Well, Beerball ruined the fun.  See!  <--click on.  It's from Snopes.

It is also noted that this is not unusal.

They have been seen doing this every year @ this time.  "They run because they can."   They are not leaving.  Actually they are running from Mammoth Hot Springs to deeper into the park.

It is stupid how this stuff goes viral.  Again, they do this every spring.

Actually pretty amazing that they stick to the opposite side of the road.  They are pretty astute drivers.

You know, as soon as Beerball told me about the Snopes thing - well it was like your Lake Norman thing.  I remember researching Bison/Buffalo in Ag.  It said that every day they will run around the perimeter fencing and often times go thru it if they do not have enough range land.  Also that come every season they seem to just walk around in circles for days like they're migrating.  It made sense that they were just doing their traveling.

They yield to slower traffic, too.  They don't text or record videos, either.

I'd like to see a bicycle rider person run a stop sign with one of those big boys bearing down on them.

Don't you want to go walk, bike riding  or for a drive in the country when it finally warms up in the spring?

I'm sure, if the buffalo were trying to escape an imminent disaster like the eruption of Yellowstone, they'd stick to the road and follow traffic laws.

People wouldn't even do that.

I wonder if the cars got cow catchers on them?

I'm just happy they weren't traveling in the left lane and forcing angry rednecks to drive off the road.
