Gary Danko Nixes Frog Legs

Popular high-end eatery Gary Danko announces that it will remove frog legs from its menu.

In an effort to move towards more environmentally sustainable business practices, San Francisco-based gourmet restaurant Gary Danko has announced it will remove frog legs from its menu. The change was prompted by a global movement to protect amphibians from extinction by phasing out the dish from restaurants around the world, and it coincides with animal-rights group Saves the Frogs second annual Save the Frogs Day. Researchers estimate that more than 100 million frogs are removed from the wild annually for food production. In addition to human consumption, amphibians are at risk due to habitat loss and pollution.
