VIDEO: Unknown Creature Attacks Salmon In Viral Video

Fact checked

A video originally posted to Facebook that shows an unknown creature attacking a salmon swimming in a river has gone viral.

According to GeoBeats News:

Bear, bird or something else entirely?

Such is the discussion that erupted in regards to a seven-second video posted to Facebook by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

In the video, a salmon swims through Icicle Creek in Leavenworth, Washington at a more or less medium pace.

The soon-to-be-frightened fish flits off camera but immediately returns with surprise. There’s a lot of turbulent activity, and when the water clears a mysterious creature is seen looming above.

But the footage is fuzzy, and the identity of the assailant is tough to make out.
Most say it’s a bear.

One commenter says it’s a bird of prey.

Another swears it must be bigfoot.

The puzzling furor all but ensured that the video went viral.

Whatever it was must have made its mark. The salmon sadly doesn’t come back into view.
