Animals can predict earthquakes

http://www.enn.com/wildlife/article/48396

They say animals can tell when a disaster is about to happen. Turns out it’s scientifically proven true! Some scientists set up some cameras to monitor animals behavior, and noticed that 23 days before an earthquake hit, animals activity began to quickly drop, until a week before the earthquake hit the cameras were picking up zero animal activity in the once very active Yanachanga national park in Peru. Supposedly this is due to molecules on the earth’s surface becoming electrically charged due to pre-earthquake activity, which in elevates Serotonin levels in the animals bloodstream for some reason, causing them to become restless and anxious and leave the area. I wonder why this doesn’t seem to affect humans?
