Police in Peru have launched a campaign to save frogs from being turned into an aphrodisiac drink.

‘Frogshake’ is popular among native Peruvians as a stimulant that enhances male sexual performance.

Police saved 4,000 frogs from being juiced to make the drink in a raid on a warehouse in Lima.

Terra Noticias Populares reports the frogs were packed in boxes and were about to be liquidised.

But they have now released the animals into a nature reserve.

A police spokesman said: “It is our new crusade, to save the frogs from those juice-makers!”
