Things didn’t work out so well for “Toadzilla”.

A Department of Environment and Science spokesman confirms the toad was humanely euthanized. Researchers believe the kindest way to do this is to put the toad in a fridge for a few hours, then transfer it to a freezer for a painless death.

On the plus side, Australian wildlife is slowly learning which parts of a cane toad are safe to eat.
