(side note: possibly the best thing to come out of this tragedy is the documentary, "Cane Toads: An Unnatural History", which you should see IMMEDIATELY if for some reason you haven't. Priceless. I believe one of the "reviews" on the DVD case reads, "If Monty Python made a documentary, this would be it!")
Anyway, the latest news: loads of cane toads were collected by some locals and disposed of "humanely". There are some parts of the video that are almost documentary-worthy in their oddness.
