Frog Lovers Asked To Send Used Hearing Aids To Hawaii’s Mayor

HILO, Hawaii (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Frog lovers are being asked to send old hearing aids to the mayor of Hawaii County, Harry Kim, because their pleas to save the coqui tree frog are falling on deaf ears.

Sydney Ross Singer, director of Coqui Hawaiian Integration and Reeducation Project (CHIRP) is asking for the hearing aids because he claims the mayor isn’t listening to citizens requests to leave the Puerto Rican-native chirping frog alone.

Enemies of the frog say the amphibian is an environmental nuisance and the loud croak of thousands of frogs could cause citizens to go deaf, but Singer claims that’s just a myth.

He’s more upset with the millions of dollars being spent to exterminate the frog and the caustic lime being sprayed to get rid of Kermit.

To show support, he says he’s asking people send the mayor used hearing aids, adding, “I want the used ear wax still on them.”
