Animal Instincts

Do you remember all the news stories after the huge earthquake and tsunami in Thailand in 2004, about how very few animals died because they may have a 'sixth sense' or 'animal instinct' that may have been able to sense the ground shaking before humans could, giving them the opportunity to run to higher ground before they were in any danger?

Security cameras in newspaper offices in Arcata, California were rolling before and during the magnitude 6.5 earthquake that struck just off the coast of Eureka, California on Saturday, January 9, 2010.....

You can clearly see the dog jumping up and bolting to find its owner before the earthquake occurs..... All reports indicate that the dog and it's owner did get out of the building safely....


  1. wow - I would get myself a dog if I lived on a fault line!


  2. Very cool! My dog seems to know when I feel bad.

  3. damn that dog hauled a**!!!

  4. I like how the dog ran to get it's owner.... It didn't try to run out of the building and save itself.... There's a way that animals are better than humans....

  5. That is one great pooch to have!! But I think the dog was acting on instinct the same a mother or father would when confronted with the same situation.

  6. Man..I'll trade mine in for that dog anyday!
