Do animals have a sixth sense
The tsunami in the Indian Ocean is an incredibly devastating disaster -- it is almost impossible to come to grips with the extent of death, destruction and injury that has fallen on so many people. Our hearts go out to all who are suffering as a result of this tragedy. One of the stories that I have heard recently is that no elephants and wild animals have been found along with the suggestion that animals seem to have a sixth sense about impending disaster. Kevin Paine has written an informative response to this idea here. As he quite rightly says, with the overwhelming human crisis we are having to deal with, maybe worrying about the number of dead animals is right down the bottom of our list of priorities at the moment. Check out Kevin's comment here.
