An extraordinary story recently appeared on Lahore Twitter after a story was published in a local Urdu newspaper. It asserted a man was captured with 185kg worth of dead frogs that would have been offered to cafés in Lahore.
This story is false. It likewise claimed that the dead frogs would have been utilized in “burgers and shawarmas”.
In any case, some portion of the story is valid: the police did temporarily arrest two men for transporting frogs. Police halted the two men, who were going in a rickshaw, with eight sacks. The sacks contained around 185kg of frogs, some dead and some alive. The police just halted the men since they thought the frogs were of a rare animal species.
In any case, that is the place the story closes. They were not taking them to eateries by any means. The men were offering the frogs to a research center on Abkari Road which at that point provided them to Medical colleges. Medical students dissect the frogs and work on suturing on them.
Having the frogs isn’t a wrongdoing and neither the police nor the Punjab Wildlife Department had any issue with the case. The men were discharged and could go however their frogs were discharged into a river.
