Why are buffalo fleeing from Yellowstone National Park?  Depends on who you ask. Some think they are being chased away by poachers, while others believe the recent earthquakes will trigger another in the park, causing a Supervolcano.

According to the Epoch Times, almost a quarter of the herd at Yellowstone National Park are missing. Tom Lupshu says 'herds of bison running for their lives detect something vast and deadly. The Yellowstone Supervolcano is the only thing there that would fit the bill.'

No one can predict when the Supervolcano will blow but Lupshu says 'one thing is for sure. The more Earthquakes in the region, the more chances of the volcano being activated from its dormant state.'

Researchers say the Supervolcano is bigger than first thought and if it blows, it could be disastrous.

Al Nash from Yellowstone says animals have moved out of the park, but there's a reason. 'They're doing that because it's the depths of winter, food is a little hard to find. They tend to migrate this time of winter outside the park where they think there might be something to eat that's easier to get at. When the snow melts and things start to green up, those same animals will walk back into the park. We have seen no signs to suggest the Yellowstone volcano is about to erupt.'
