southern leopard frog

I have what I believe to be a large southern leopard frog in my pond that's been acting rather aggressively towards my fish. Late yesterday when I was feeding the fish the frog lunged out from among the plants he was hiding in and seemed to attack the goldfish. Is this just territorial behavior or was it trying to eat some of the smaller goldfish? Has anyone else seen this kind of behavior before?

How were you feeding your fish, by dropping flakes onto the water? Maybe the frog thought your flakes were insects. ??

I drop pellets on top of the water.

Frogs do eat fish....Bullfrogs for sure but I see no reason why a Leopard frog would not. They all eat anything they can catch.
