Who is Crossing the Road Now?

WHO IS CROSSING THE ROAD NOW?


In a previous blog post, we discussed and examined the age-old issue of “Why did the Chicken Cross the Road?”


Well, now we have a new question.


Why do toads, frogs, and newts cross the road?


Now we have the answer:


Local campaigners have successfully ensured that a road crossed by toads, frogs, and newts will once again be closed for the busiest six weeks of the breeding season.

Charlcombe Lane in Bath, UK, will stay shut until March 25. During this time, thousands of amphibians will venture across the road to reach their breeding lake in a valley below.


Bath and North East Somerset Council has agreed to close the road every spring since 2003. Local volunteers from Charlcombe Toad Rescue Group oversee the crossings and help toads, frogs, and newts get to safety.


How cool is this?


How compassionate is this?



Humans, or at least these humans, care.


Rev. William
