Frog’s head gets stuck inside a car’s bumper

Stories about animals getting stuck in trees or trapped inside windows can sometimes be found on our news feeds.

Most of the animals featured are either cats or dogs, since they’re often curious about everything around them and are thus more likely to get trapped while pursuing whatever caught their interest.

However, some animals that are well-known for their jumping abilities can also accidentally get trapped in everyday objects – just like cats and dogs.

Here’s the story about a Thai woman and her friends in Bangkok who rescued a frog that was stuck inside a car’s bumper.

Netizen 1: How did he got into the bumper?

OP: I was driving past a field. I guess he accidentally jumped into my car’s bumper while he was crossing the street. My grandson saw it and told me.

One netizen questioned how the frog’s head got stuck in the bumper, which was clarified by the camerawoman.

Netizen 2: Is he still alive?

OP: Of course, he’s alive, but he’s very big. LOL

Another netizen was worried about the frog’s safety and seemed relieved to hear that the frog is alive and healthy.

Translation: The frog stands for 9. Car has 4 wheels with 4 witnesses. It’s equal to 994/49. LOL

While other netizens were worried about the frog’s life, one viewer guessed the winning lottery numbers from the incident.

We were ecstatic to see that the frog was successfully freed and didn’t receive severe injuries from the unexpected accident.

Look both ways before crossing the street

We really hope that the frog will return home safely and will be more careful the next time he has to cross the street.

However, we’re also imagining what it’d be like if he was adopted by the car’s conscientious and kind owner. If that were the case, the frog would probably be less likely to face situations where his life is hanging on a thread – similar to this one.
