Records as far back as ancient Greece tell of dogs fleeing the city of Helice before a tragic earthquake. China also has stories of dogs showing sings of distress before seismic activity.
Although dogs are very much aware of their surroundings, some scientists argue that a dogs hearing is so perceptive that they can hear rocks crumbling under the grounds surface. Some seismologists think that the dogs feel seismic activity through their paws.
Either way, if a dog in an earthquake prone area begins to act odd…there might be an imminent earthquake to follow.
