Toads on the move again in Philadelphia

Warning: Amorous Amphibians Ahead.

Toads heeding the call of the wild are migrating and a group of Philadelphians is again shutting down a road to help them on their way.

For the third year a group of volunteers is closing down Port Royal Avenue in the city's Roxborough neighborhood so the toads don't get squished on their way to a reservoir where they mate.

Toad Detour head Lisa Levinson is asking motorists using other streets to be on the lookout, too. She says that one car can kill hundreds of the libidinous toads.
