A cane toad found in an Australian backyard has been humanely euthanized by conservation officials. But "Joh" may get a second life as a treasured family heirloom.
Now 11-year-old Scott Hogan has put in a request to have Joh's body returned – so he can be stuffed and mounted on the mantelpiece.
"It would make a good conversation piece over dinner, a family heirloom, which we can pass down through the generations," his father Michael Hogan said yesterday. [Link]
