THE DOG LOOKED WORRIED

The closer she walked to the dog, the louder the sound became. She then asked her dog: “Why is your mouth making that noise?” The black and white hairy pet did not respond, but he had a worried expression on his face.

It appeared as if the dog did not know what to do with the buzzing sound coming from his mouth. The owner attempted to get him to drop what he had been holding onto.

CREATURE FALLS FROM DOG'S MOUTH

She said: “That has got to be uncomfortable.” Finally, after some nudging, she managed to pry open her dog's mouth, and that's when a creature fell out.

The owner immediately said: “Leave it, leave it,” as she moved away from the creature, which was, in actual fact, a cicada. The dog seemed startled by the creature, and his actions garnered quite the online response.

DON'T PANIC IF THEY EAT THEM

From this TikToker's account, it seems Levy the dog adores chasing cicadas. There are multiple videos chronicling these adventures online, and experts indicate that it is not a major health concern.

Elizabeth Barnes, an exotic forest pest educator with Purdue University, stated: “Don’t panic if your dog’s eating cicadas. But at the same time, it’s not something I would necessarily encourage my pet to be eating." Balance and moderation are important, so keep a fine eye on your pet's cicada intake.
