Video shows salmon crossing the road

SHELTON, WA (CNN) - We all know why the chicken crossed the road, but what about the fish?

Well, for a school of salmon in Shelton, Washington, it was to give birth.

Alexis Leonard, a fish expert spotted over a dozen salmon swimming across a highway on Saturday.

The roadway was flooded at the time, which made the voyage much easier for the mothers to be.

According to Leonard, this is nothing unusual for the state of Washington, but it did make for some great video.
