Bison and many other animals are leaving Yellowstone in droves, and its prompting theories that minor earthquakes in the area could soon set off the Yellowstone Super Volcano.

A series of smaller quakes have hit the region over the past few weeks, and the more earthquakes hit an area, the more chances a volcano may be activated from its dormant state.

The scientist in charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory told CNN that despite recent seismic activity, “We don’t anticipate an eruption anytime soon.”

Dan Hottle, Spokesman, Yellowstone National Park also says that the bison in this viral YouTube video were running into the park. “If I stayed on the phone with you for 15 min longer I can probably point the camera out the window and show you a bison running down my cul de sac.”
