The recent migration of bison from Yellowstone National Park has made some people believe that doomsday is around the corner. This comes just a few days after scientists announced that the prophetic blood moon is set to appear this month. The Yellowstone bison migration and many other signs are beginning to prove that the current world will not last for long, according to some people.
Yellowstone National Park is located along the Yellowstone Caldera, which is famous for its super volcanoes. When an earthquake of 4.8 magnitude hit the famous park, the intensity and size of the blast sent the American public into panic mode. Most people believed that such a tremor was capable of provoking a catastrophic and historic volcanic eruption within the park.
The earthquake that took place on March 30 is said to be the largest that the park has ever witnessed since the late 1980s. It created a series of foreshocks and aftershocks therefore leading to massive migration of bison from the park.
According to some viral videos posted on social media sites such as YouTube, the Yellowstone bison migration was described as a result of the deadly quake and the need to find a better or safer environment to live in. The ungulates were said to be fleeing for their lives following their instincts that warned them about a probable disaster ahead. The Yellowstone Caldera is currently considered a dormant volcano yet it is one of the world’s deadliest if it erupts. It attracts millions of tourists from all corners of the world who come to witness its unique hot springs and geysers fueled by the presence of hot lava beneath the earth.
A few years ago, geologists used to believe that the caldera was smaller but a recent measurement has proved them wrong. It is said to be 29 miles wide and if it erupts, it might cause unimaginable damage and mass deaths.
The park has 25 percent less bison that it was last winter and this is a clear indication that animal instincts are somehow correct even as they flee for their lives. The second theory explains that the animals might not be running away out of fear of a volcanic eruption as some people believe. According to scientists and geologists, these animals could be running away from hunters or probably just migrating to find new sources of food.
Even though scientists and geologists might be right with their explanation of the Yellowstone bison migration, so many people are asking why these animals have to leave in such a hurry with their faces full of fear if at all they are merely searching for new sources of food. Al Nash, the current Public Affairs Chief at Yellowstone National Park, revealed that these animals usually leave the park during spring to search for food elsewhere. Scientists admit that the volcano might erupt again but not anytime soon. The last eruption at the caldera took place 640,000 years ago and scientists believe there is no need to panic. Whether doomsday is around the corner or not, the Yellowstone bison migration and its horrific rumors are not worth ignoring.
