Maryland Golden Retriever Chows Down on Cicadas

A pair of adorable golden retrievers ate multiple cicadas while playing in their Silver Spring, Maryland, backyard on May 28.

Footage shot by Jennifer Golbeck and published to The Golden Ratio YouTube channel, shows a young dog named Guacamole and a furry friend gobbling up Brood X cicadas, which have been inundating parts of the eastern United States.

“We got [Guacamole] at the beginning of the pandemic and he likes to eat everything,” Golbeck told Storyful. “This was his first experience with cicadas and while we were worried that he would eat them like potato chips, he only enjoys them in moderation,” she said.
