Toad migration closes Freiburg stadium exit road

The migration of hundreds of toads to a nearby lake is forcing

Freiburg to close an exit road from its stadium after a Bundesliga

game against Wolfsburg on Saturday.

The club said Friday that Waldsee Street, which runs west of the

Badenova stadium on the edge of the Black Forest, would remain

closed after the final whistle, meaning fans will have to make

alternative plans to get home.

A team statement said that ”as an environmentally committed

club SC Freiburg is taking the migration to the forest lake into

account, and asks supporters for understanding.”
