BERLIN (AP) - 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.”
