Salmon Crosses Road In Spawn-taneous Migration (Video)

Posted: Updated:

Spawn-taneous salmon were caught crossing the road in Seattle, after floods in Washington State saw the floundering fish scale new heights to move upstream and lay their eggs.

Smart salmon on the side of the Skokomish Valley Road in Seattle waited with baited breath for cars to pass, before making full use of the oppor-tuna-ty.

Although these fish look like they are having a whale of a time, after laying their eggs, many salmon will die after the long arduous journey back to the rivers they were born in.

Navigating rapids, currents and waterfalls, these fish will manoeuvre past anything during their annual swim upstream, nicknamed "the salmon run".
