Carp in French streets

Carpworld - - ECHOES -

Huge amounts of rain in the spring across Europe caused many prob­lems, in par­tic­u­lar for the large rivers of France. News re­ports showed the River Seine burst­ing its banks in some parts and caus­ing some flood­ing in the most built-up ar­eas. But else­where it was the fish that were in a spot of bother when the rivers Rhone and Saone burst their banks. The prob­lem in those sit­u­a­tions is that the fish of­ten leave the fast cur­rents of the main river in the search for more tran­quil wa­ters but, as the photo shows, this of­ten leads to the fish los­ing their way. In­deed, these carp were pic­tured on a flooded road nor­mally fre­quented by cars and pedes­tri­ans! Our only hope is that they found their way back home as the floods re­ceded.
