Crows Cause Toads to Explode


CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011

CROWS CAUSE TOADS TO EXPLODE

     Male Crow: I brought something special home for our dinner for you, wifey poo. A special treat.

     Female Crow: I can’t wait to see what you’re carrying in your beak. Ooh—a toad liver! I haven’t had one of those in years!

     In Germany, toads have been exploding by the hundreds because they are being attacked by crows, a veterinary surgeon revealed. Animal welfare workers reported that as many as 1,000 toads swelled to bursting point and exploded in recent days, propelling their entrails as high as to 3 feet into the air. Now, a veterinary surgeon, frank Mutschmann, who has examined the remains of the toads, said they had been pierced with a single peck by crows trying to eat their livers. This in turn caused the toads to explode.

     Fortunately, the crows engulfing the Pittsburgh (PA) region won’t find many toads.

     Wait a minute! Am I hearing the croaking of toads! And there’s several crows flying about! I’d better get inside the house before I’m sprayed with toad entrails!
