    Thousands of toxic toads killed in Australian fest

    Hundreds of participants in five communities across northern Queensland snacked on sausages, sipped cold drinks and picked up prizes as the portly pests were weighed, measured and euthanized in the state's inaugural "Toad Day Out" celebration.

    "To see the look on the faces of the kids as we were handling and weighing the toads and then euthanizing them was just..." Townsville City Councilman Vern Veitch said, breaking off to let out a contented sigh. "The children really got into the character of the event."
