As Albert Valdez left his home on a stormy morning, he observed a strange scene at the end of his driveway.

“As I got out of my truck, there was a crawdad walking down the middle of the street,” Valdez told KRQE. “(And) as I walked around, I saw crawdads walking all over the street.”

Valdez grabbed a bucket and began collecting the crayfish, KRQE reported. He then deposited them in a drainage ditch, giving the animals a source of water.

Albuquerque officials and spokesmen from the Game and Fish Commission told KRQE they were unable to explain why there were so many crawdads wandering through the streets.
