This guy knows what to do, but I s'pose some moronic dogooder from PETA or Animal rights will step in now and say we cant bash them.....

During the rain, I've seen them at the top of the Mulgrave, so thick in a paddock you cant help but kick five or ten whilst walking and thats just in one patch.
They say to put Detoll on them or put them in your freezer untill dead....Personally I prefer to collect them in a steel bucket, pore petrol on them and light them up ...
The idiots who brought them here in the 30's have a lot to answer for !!!
They where brought in to control the cane beetle, trouble was the Toad was on the ground and the beetle was up the top of the cane stalk, they discovered much to their chagrin that cane toads dont jump high enough or fly to get the beetle....d!ckheads

No stopping them now it seems, with the way they breed there arn't enough Willow trees to match them.

Gov. bounty of 10cents per toad may slow them down before they swamp(pun intended)QLD & NT.

Don't know the in's and out's of this problem(the toads sure do)BUT DESPARATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPARATE MEASURES.

The things are already on the outskirts of Kakadu, it has also been proven that they have caused an evolutionary change in at least one australian reptile. Its a frog eating snake, cant remember which one, but they have found that over the last 70 years since the toad was brought here the snake has evolved a smaller head.........smaller head = smaller prey, so it cant absorb as much of the toxin produced by the toad, hence it has a longer life expectancy......

Dont get me started on the flying toad either (indian myna bird)
