Queensland dogs are getting high by licking the poison off cane toads.

Vets are warning some pooches may become addicted to the hallucinogenic and are risking their lives trying to get their next toad fix.

It’s being reported the dogs have worked out how to lick the toad just enough to get high.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
