It is interesting to see how all this information can be presented and we can all make our own conclusions.

But, I'd be very concerned to see the animals getting away from a certain area. Inside the government boundaries to define the park or outside the man made boundaries.

I have heard on several programs that the particular video of them running down the road is actually them running INTO the park, not out.

Look at the last few seconds of video. Does it look like there is a man moving through the brush where the buffalo came from? Is it possible they were being herded? There is definitely something moving there but I can't tell for sure if it is a man or an animal.

They don't look panicky to me, more like it's feeding time and they are moving toward food.

We've been discussing this on another site, and some people said that they migrate at this time of year anyway. I agree with the people who said that the bison on the road appear to be herded.

That it's not showing up anywhere but extreme fringe right wing websites says a lot IMNSHO too.

Just a few minutes after I made that post, NBC News said it was simply normal bison migration within the park, and that Yellowstone has over 3,000 measurable earthquakes every years.

BTW re: herd animals and earthquakes. I was at a large boarding stable looking out the door when an earthquake came along. All the horses were doing normal horse stuff from grazing to sleeping flat out when it hit. Not one of the more than 50 horses that were in my view reacted before me. So I don't believe that they have any sixth sense about when the quakes are coming.

When we went to Yellowstone a few years ago the buffalo didn't run much of anywhere and certainly weren't afraid of people. Someone on foot trying to heard them would be suicidal. There are signs everywhere letting people know that buffalo are wild animals and an average of 50 people were killed every year. Saw several not so bright people walking up to them with children in tow.

They did a good job of staying inside their lane of the road. I was impressed!

That impressed me too!
Towards the end of the video, one was even passing another properly. Well except for not signaling. Then again, maybe he did and I just didn't see his hoof signal. LOL

Since they're on the road, if actually exiting the park, shouldn't they be going through one of the gates?

Hey give me a break--I'm a blonde.

It's bogus folks. Step away from the computer. Breathe deeply. Feel better now?

There's info on the internet about what will happen before Yellowstone erupts. The eruption with be triggered by a much bigger expansion followed by the area within the caldera collapsing. We're no where near that.

Do your own research rather than listen to the chicken littles. T

Agreed. Volcanoes do not erupt with no warning whatsoever.
