A group of thieves were recently caught on camera stealing Sonoran Desert Toads at a conservation park in Arizona. 

Maricopa County officials say that the thieves were probably stealing the toads because they secrete a toxin that has hallucinogenic properties. Humans have been known to lick the toads in order to get high even though it can be very dangerous.
