|"Kermit the frog for President!"|
Look out everyone it is Friday the thirteenth. This should be a popular post for today so I thought I would do something a bit different. There is something about frogs that I find fascinating. Maybe it has to do with all those fairy tales that I read as a child. The frog is Prince charming in disguise. We all know that, right girls? The Loveland frog though is another type of frog and not quite so charming. It is a completely bizarre creature that was sighted several times in Loveland Ohio from 1952 onwards. This creature was often witnessed in groups and was described as a human sized bipedal frog.
One of the first witnesses to this frog like creature was a businessman driving along a country road in Loveland Ohio when he noticed some odd looking animals at the side of the road. He pulled over to get a better look and couldn't believe what he was seeing. A number of strange amphibian-like creatures were moving along the side of the road. A search of the area later revealed no signs of the frog creatures.
Nothing was reported of the strange creatures until 20 years later when in 1972 a policeman who was driving along that exact same road spotted an odd beast crouched down at the side of the road. A few seconds later the frog-like creature stood up to reveal its true size and then disappeared down an embankment towards a nearby river. 2 weeks later a similar animal was witnessed by another policeman on the same road. The policeman took a shot at the animal but missed as it scurried away into the undergrowth.
If he is roaming around today and you happened to run into him, would you dare a kiss in hopes that he would turn into a prince?
