It’s a well know fact! Some animals are afraid of storms! Now it does vary from species to species, but since the Dog is one of the most popular house pets, thats what i’m going to use.
I know that some breeds (especially smaller dogs) get nervous (like my sisters poodle mix) just by the sound of thunder. Then my dog (Golden Retriever) does not even flinch during a plain thunderstorm!
BUT when a tornado went about five miles from our house, my dog was strangely nervous and jumpy during that 45 Min span the storm was in the area!
Now their is proof that animals can sense earthquakes, so i would think that they can sense tornados and severe storms as well!
What do you think that they can sense in a storm that tell their instincts that somethings not right?
Is it the Barometric Pressure changes or something?
