Tidal Wave Claims The Lives Of Few Animals
Wildlife officials in Sri Lanka expressed surprise Wednesday that they
found no evidence of large-scale animal deaths from the weekend's massive
tsunami — indicating that animals may have sensed the wave coming and fled to
An Associated Press photographer who flew over Sri Lanka's Yala National
Park in an air force helicopter saw abundant wildlife, including elephants,
buffalo, deer, and not a single animal corpse.
So, is this an ability that only animals have, or are humans also capable of sensing this sort of danger but simply ignore it because we're not "tuned in" to what our bodies are telling us?
