CHEYENNE, Wyoming - First it was the buffaloes stampeding out of Yellowstone National Park and heading south towards Colorado.
Then there were reports that woodchucks were hurriedly scampering north to Montana.
Yellowstone National Park rangers are now noticing that the Yellowstone birds are all acting very peculiar including woodpeckers who have actually stopped pecking wood.
Noted aviary expert Dr. Tartan Overbrick stated that there has only been one instance in history that he has heard of woodpeckers not pecking and that was 9 days before Mt. Vesuvius erupted back in 79 AD.
Most aviary experts agree that the way things are going with the seismic inner Earth readings of the underground volcano there won't be a single bird left in Yellowstone within 2 weeks.
SIDENOTE: One potato farmer in Pocatello, Idaho said that a few days ago a Yellowstone ostrich suddenly showed up on his farm tired as heck and totally out of breath.
