    Default Wildlife and quakes?

    I live just north of Prague, OK which has apparently become earthquake central here in Oklahoma. After this weekends shaking, it seems that most of the animals have high tailed it outta here. No coyotes howling, no nothing. I'm guessing they don't like it anymore than I do. Having your house shake, and dodging pictures and glasses flying off the walls is no fun whatsoever. Just an observation....

    We felt that one out here in Altus. I was talking with the wife wondering if the deer were freaking out over this. I will head out this weekend and see if they are still around.

    Having lived most of my life in California, the critters get over the quakes faster than we do.

    I was out hunting when a big quake hit here in So. Ca., I saw some muledeer take a wider stance and keep eating. I guess out here thay are use to it and know what to do so they don't fall over.

    Bowgramp59,your about 225 miles or so away, so it was a good shaking. As a matter of fact, just had another aftershock about 45 minutes ago. A 2.9, thankfully it was a small one. Not sure I wanna be out in the woods when the next one hits! (although that might be safer than being in the house....)
