Mice can predict quakes

Tokyo, June 25 (AFP): Japanese researchers said today they have proved mice act strangely after being exposed to electromagnetism similar to that often monitored ahead of a big earthquake.

In their experiments, researchers exposed mice to low levels of electromagnetism which people cannot feel, said Takeshi Yagi, professor at Osaka University in western Japan.

“The mice then became unstable and ran around inside the cage, scratched their faces and stuck their heads into sawdust in the cage,” Yagi said.
