To humanely euthanize a cane toad, we’re told we should capture it, rub a 20 percent benzocaine gel on its belly, then freeze it.

I think you can safely euthanize the toad along with cleaning the kitty litter a la Uncle Bob

Whatever you do, don't lick it!

Now playing: Not Bruce Springsteen's Adam Raised a Cain (Toad).

Don't waste your toad. Take it to Toad Suck Daze in Conway, Arkansas. They claim the Toad Dome there is always hopping with excitement. I have never gone that event myself because it occurs when I'm due to rearrange my sock drawer.

Then take it from the freezer, drop it in a vat of oil at 350 degrees, and serve with fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Wikipedia say if you carefully remove the skin and parotoid glands it makes a healthy meat with lots of omega-3s. Woo hoo! I hear it tastes like rattlesnake.

You forgot the marinade again.

Marinade Makes Meat Marvelous!
