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 tells KYW-TV that one car can kill hundreds of the libidinous toads.
