Thirty-Seven Frogs Flushed Down Toilet

We received a call recently from a whistleblower who alerted us to a situation at Coach House Gifts in Clovis, Calif. where 37 out of 40 frogs in a shipment died after being left in the shipping box so long that they succumbed to heat. The dead frogs were flushed down the toilet.

Wondering what a store that specializes in Hallmark cards and Silly Bandz is doing with frog shipments? Well, Coach House Gifts also sells frogs crammed into 4′ by 4′ plastic cubes and sells them as desk “decorations” similar to Brookstone’s “Frog-O-Spheres.”

The similarities between the two novelty gifts don’t stop there either. Both Coach House Gifts and Brookstone buy their frogs from hellhole Wild Creations. Our undercover investigation into Wild Creations, documented rampant neglect and mishandling of these delicate animals and total disregard for their needs, welfare, and lives. Our investigator witnessed frogs being thrown around and even tossed into the garbage while they were still alive.

Tell Coach House Gifts president Craig J. Walker to stop selling these tiny frog prisons, and then demand that Brookstone do the same!

Stay loud!

    I sent a website providing these torture-chambers a message on “Contact us”, but the limited space meant I could only make a small statement, which was really, really annoying. This doesn’t need to happen – no one would really give a crap if they stopped selling them anyway – they’re not exactly a must-have. I think the majority of people think they’re unethical and cruel, so it’s a win-win situation really; the company doesn’t loose money, and the customers don’t particularly loose out on much. :)

    Here in Brazil we have similar cases with the wild animal selling (which is illegal), but loads of animals die due to these insane conditions…it’s horrible!

    What kind of a disgusting person would want a dead frog preserved in a plastic case!? Thats just as morbid as having a deer or moose head on your wall. Seriously, I just can’t understand why people would want that kind of thing!
