Virginia Puppy Loves Chasing Cicadas

Cicadas might not be to everyone’s taste, but one Virginia puppy sure loves chasing them.

Christopher Militzer, of Leesburg, recorded six-month-old Tessie as the young boxer disturbed a swarm of the insects resting on a tree. “Yes I did get covered during the filming,” he wrote on Instagram.

Militzer told Storyful that the noise from cicadas in his neighborhood has “gotten terrible,” but Tessie was still enjoying chasing them.

“She seems to enjoy playing with them and pouncing on them… before she eventually eats them,” he said. Credit: Christopher Militzer via Storyful
