Whacking Day in the Northern Territory?

This sounds a little familiar:

MORE than 500 people will take part in a giant toad-busting operation in Darwin, Palmerston and the rural area this week. The all-out community attack on cane toads will take part in at least 12 locations in a bid to stop the poisonous pest's march into Darwin.

Community and residential groups, LandCare groups, the Humpty Doo and Palmerston Golf Clubs, most Top End schools, MLAs and other people will be among those out collecting every toad they can find. Every school in the Top End has been sent toad forms for distribution to students to report the numbers of toads found in their local areas. The toad busts will begin tomorrow and hop right through up to and including next Sunday...

MLA's Matthew Bonson and Minister Chris Burns will lead toad-busts in the Rapid Creek area, while Palmerston MLA Terry Mills will head up a hunt at Marlow Lagoon. Other MLAs are expected to take part in their electorates.

the indexes easily.
