A couple from Canada were left in a state of shock while preparing their evening meal as they found a live frog inside a bell pepper. Nicole Gagnon and Gerard Blackburn from Saguenay, Quebec were making dinner on February 9 when Gagnon chopped the vegetable and found a live frog. The couple then reported the green tree frog which they found mysteriously in the pepper, to the Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ)
As their strange discovery went viral, social media has been abuzz with reactions. A user wrote, "I found a giant grub inside a solid pepper once it was the most immaculate pepper too. Every time I cut open one now I brace for a surprise. This frog is basically living Plato's allegory of the cave" read one post. A user remarked, "I had a centipede crawl out of a banana when I peeled it once. Didn't eat one for a couple years after that."
