Granted, there’s always something fishy going on at a hatchery, but New Year’s Day saw a real mystery at the Issaquah salmon hatchery in Washington state.
Sometime between 4:00 p.m. and 7:15 the next morning, someone dropped a freshly cut, six foot fall cedar chainsaw carving of a salmon near the hatchery’s front door.
The name “Issaquah” is carved into the base of the statue, so it was obviously delivered to the correct address. There is no other writing on the statue, nor has the sculptor has stepped forward to claim responsibility, according to KOMO news.
