Dogs in the Northern Territory are getting "high" on cane toads.

Dogs were licking the backs of the warty pests and becoming addicted to the hallucinogenic poison, a NT vet said today.

Megan Pickering, a vet in Katherine, said she had treated a number of dogs affected by the deadly toad poison.

"We have had quite a number of cases of dogs that are getting addicted to the toxin," Ms Pickering told the Northern Territory News newspaper.

"There seems to be dogs that are licking the toxin to get high.

"They lick the toads and only take in a small amount of the poison - they get a smile on their face and look like they are going to wander off into the sunset."

Katherine, about three hours drive south of Darwin, has been ravaged by the cane toads for about three years.

Cane toads have marched across Australia from Queensland, where they were introduced in the 1930s to kill pests in the cane fields, to northern NSW, and across into the NT.

They have destroyed wildlife in world heritage-listed Kakadu on their relentless march north, and are due to hit Darwin this wet season.

they get a smile on their face

What? Has anyone else ever seen a dog smile? Maybe the person who said that was tripping?

That dog is off his face. Looks like a dog you'd find at womad. Bloody hippy.

Probably been licking a toad.

Debaser has loads of pictures of cute animals at hand all the time. Is this worrying?
