SB 10.16.11
gavo vrsa vatsataryah
 krandamanah su-duhkhitah
krsne nyasteksana bhita
 rudantya iva tasthire

The cows, bulls and female calves, in great distress, called out piteously to Krsna. Fixing their eyes on Him, they stood still in fear, as if ready to cry but too shocked to shed tears.

SB 10.16.12
atha vraje mahotpatas
 tri-vidha hy ati-darunah
utpetur bhuvi divy atmany

In the Vrndavana area there then arose all three types of fearful omens — those on the earth, those in the sky and those in the bodies of living creatures — which announced imminent danger.

According to Srila Sridhara Svami, the omens were as follows: on the earth there were disturbing tremors, in the sky there were meteors falling, and in the bodies of creatures there was shivering, as well as quivering of the left eye and other parts of the body. These omens announce imminent danger.
