I have a friend with a small pond in his yard and a larger pond in a city park nearby (Canton, Ohio). It seems almost all the frogs are dying. He found over 50 dead ones before he quit counting them and says he finds 10 more every day. A toxin is the first thing that comes to mind. Anybody know of an issue in the Ohio area? Saw and heard a few frogs in the lake where I fish a few miles away, hope this is a localized occurrence and not a statewide issue! I have posted an inquiry with the Ohio Division of Wildlife this evening and am awaiting a reply.
