Frogs in Our Throats

Since the dawn of humanity, frogs have been on our dinner plates, and they still provide an important food source for some developing countries. But in wealthy nations, frog legs have become a trendy delicacy. Americans import 1.25 million pounds of frog legs each year. Every day tons of wild frogs are caught and shipped to restaurants around the world, and wild populations cannot keep pace with the slaughter.
