There is an amazing video where a dog is unquestionably noticing the pre-seismic signals of the Utah earthquake before it happens, and is reacting in a major way. However, there is a massive error in the video.
Due to copyright protections I cannot show this video, but you can go watch it yourself: Dog Senses Earthquake Try to spot the error before reading it below!
So what was the issue there? Well, I’d love to know which ‘experts’ were consulted by The Weather Channel for this story. The story suggests ultrasound and infrasound emissions by earthquakes could be heard by the dog beforehand, and while that theory does exist, the data in the peer-reviewed journals we have seen indicates that animals react based on the electromagnetic precursors to the event. Was the Utah event an ‘electroquake’? This dog sure noticed something.
