[edit] Information

Cane Toads - An Unnatural History is a hilarious documentary about what is certainly one of the most foolish attempts to control crop pests using biological methods.
The Cane Toads were imported by the sackload from Hawaii to Australia in 1935, in an attempt to rid the country of the Greyback beetle, which was rapidly destroying the sugarcane crop. Problem was, the beetle could fly and the Cane Toad couldn't. So the toad was no use for controlling the beetle. What the Cane Toad is unusually good at, however, is making more Cane Toads - thousands upon thousands more. The Cane Toads adapted beautifully to their new surroundings and quickly spread. In short, the descendents of the original 102 toads virtually took over half a continent.
It is almost sickening to consider the sheer numbers of these hideous creatures that are crawling all over north eastern Australia, as well as the ignorance that led to their being brought into Australia in the first place. This video gives a humurous look at how biological control can go horribly wrong.
