Salmon cross flooded road much to dog’s delight

The Sideshow

In Mason County, Wash., the salmon aren't just swimming upstream—they're also swimming across the street. Due to heavy rains, local rivers are flooding and the confused fish are winding up in some strange places.

And that's just fine with at least one local dog. The pooch, who must be thinking that Christmas came early, wanders into the road, snags a salmon like he's at a lunch buffet and trots off down the road. No work necessary.

Of course, this sort of thing has happened before. Last year, KOMO, a Seattle news site, posted a clip of salmon struggling to cross a flooded road. Fortunately, those fish didn't have to deal with hungry dogs.
