Awful Aussie evades Kiwi biosecurity in Queenstown...

An awful and unwanted Aussie evaded Kiwi biosecurity at Queenstown Airport in Otago recently.

A poisonous cane toad had stowed away in a pair of woman's tramping boots. While she was in the Ultimate Hikes shop in Queenstown the cane toad hopped out of her bag.

Shop staff grabbed it, and then phoned Agriculture and Forestry Ministry officials who confirmed the identity of the Aussie.

The cane toad was stowed away in a freezer to die.
