Frog Legs

The people of the world eat over 200 million frogs per year. So many people around the world enjoy eating frog legs, that there is likely to be an ecosystem problem in Asia – where most frogs for food come from. The frogs eat trillions of insects, keeping the wildlife balance in check.

Perhaps people would stop eating frogs if they realized that the frogs’ legs are usually cut off while the frogs are still alive.
