Ms Woodford Written Submissions Cane Toad Inquiry Report Volume 2 176 SUBMISSION NO. 24 Ms Faith Woodford, Private Citizen firstname.lastname@example.org 2 June 2003 Sessional Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development Dear Committee I attended the public inquiry regarding cane toads that was held in the Litchfield room in Darwin in May 2003. I subsequently had to fly to Alice Springs and was unable to place a submission to the Committee by the due date. My main concern for the inquiry to consider is that cane toads are destroyed humanely. I believe appropriate advertising will need to be given to the public about how to combat this problem and not to think that a 9 iron is the appropriate way of disposing of cane toads. Some of the speakers that spoke that day said 'humane' treatment was to place cane toads in the freezer or by using Dettol. I have been advised that in fact both of these treatments are inhumane. I am not knowledgeable in this area, but I have spoken to Mr Mauricio Perez-Ruiz who is an expert in this area and can advise you accordingly. Mauricio can be contacted on: 39756 or mobile number 0401 112 522. I apologise for using my work email address, but at this late stage, it is the quickest way for me to send to you this information. The views expressed in this email are my own personal views. Regards, Faith Woodford
