UNION, Wash. (AP) — A flooding river covered a road in Washington, allowing some migrating salmon to swim across the pavement.

Video from KOMO-TV shows one salmon didn’t make it Wednesday when it was caught by a dog that walked away with its catch near Union, about 40 miles southwest 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.
