Video: Honey the dog catches salmon swimming upstream on road

By JohnThomas Didymus     Nov 3, 2012 in Environment
Seattle - The video shows a salmon swimming upstream on a flooded road in Seattle, Washington. A dog walks up and picks it up in its jaws with such practised ease that you may think picking up a live fish swimming in water is that easy.
According to the Daily Mail, the road became flooded after the Skokomish River in Mason County, burst its banks after a bout of heavy rainfall in the Olympic Mountains.
The video footage from KOMO-TV shows a couple of salmons swimming, or rather, gliding in water on the surface of the flooded road. Honey the dog spots them and goes after one, catching it in its mouth expertly.
KOMO-TV reporter confirms our suspicion that Honey is an expert angler dog who's been fishing in flood waters for years:
"Every year the Skokomish River... floods and spawning salmon are diverted by the water rushing over the road. Honey the fishing dog loves to chase and catch the fish and bring them home to her owners."
The salmon is an impressive catch and her owner will surely be pleased.
The Daily Mail explains that the western slopes of the Olympics are among the wettest areas in the US and receives more than 140 to 170 inches of rainfall a year.
