From Morning Report, 7:51 am on 19 October 2017

An illegal trade of frogs for export has been uncovered in Turkey's Cappadoccia region. Athorities there have just released 7 and a half thousand frogs back into the wild after discovering them locked in nets in the back of a minibus. Five men have been arrested as a result. It's alleged the men had been planning to sell the frogs to an exporter. Correspondent in Turkey Laura Pitel tells us the story had a good ending, with all the frogs going free.
