Blog Guelph: Toad Crossing Guard

This news is unlikely to make the front page of our daily paper - and yet - every year at about this time, a gazzillion Guelph toads go on a dangerous pilgrimage across Arthur Street to their summer home on the Speed River for some hot toady action. Without being too graphic, many of our amphibian residence find the street crossing a crushing experience - hence the voluntary Toad Crossing Guards.

Dozens of Guelph citizens heed the call of our horny friends and head out into the night with buckets and flashy safety vests to both warn motorists and catch and carry toads to safety - thereby ensuring more croaking and less croaking if you know what I mean.

Just one more reason why living in Guelph leaves a good taste in your mouth.
