A flooding river covered a road in Washington, allowing some migrating salmon to swim across the pavement.

However, video showed one salmon did not make it when it was caught by a dog that walked away with its catch near Union, about 40 miles south-west of Seattle.

The salmon-crossing-the-road scene is replayed nearly every year on the Skokomish River. It frequently floods after heavy rain in the Olympic Mountains.
