Hi Tim and All,

Around 1994?, the Brisbane City Council conducted Toad Buster nights
throughout Brisbane where people got together in groups and caught toads by
putting their hand inside a plastic shopping bag and then inverting it after
they had grabbed  the toad. They were then put in the freezer or the Council
collected them.  I think the program run for about 2 years.

Since then, there have been a lot less toads in Brisbane.  Maybe it worked
or was it just coincidence?
