' Baby terror and sadness', back then at Ayer's Rock. This time Fraser Island - again(?). One adult attacked.
Sorry, I can't seem to get the link to work. I am guessing it is a dingo attack somewhere?

I still find the dingo story impossible for me to believe. Dingoes like dogs seldom, if ever, consume a full meal of the size of a baby in a single sitting - they would bury some for later. Also having seen dogs kill lambs, they never eat the skull. Sure they eat the meat but not the skull bone, maybe a babies skull is not as solid as a lambs. As distressing as I found the loss of baby Azaria I just cannot believe the dingo story no matter what people say, especially after they found the matinee jacket and it wasn't ripped to shreds. Sure dingoes are wild animals but they are opportunists most of the time -they would rather an easy steal from a bin than to hunt but if cornered are a nasty foe.
"The dingo ate my baby .." is a much abused misquote. What Lindy Chamberlain cried out and Meryl Streep later repeated in the movie was "The Dingo got my baby ..." or "The dingo took my baby ..". The misuse of the line which is on that Youtube clip and apparently other laugh provoking presentations is sickening. The German tourist on Fraser Island was not 'cornered'. Dingoes are not solely scavengers and will attack for food.
I have been to all places concerned and I believe the Chamberlain's tragic story. Also please see and enlarge my ppp.
like Mr Sinclair said. 'People going to Fraser Island should know to carry a walking stick to protect themselves in case dingoes attack and to travel in groups or pairs.' 'People need to take responsibility for themselves and understand dingoes are predators, they are not domestic dogs.'
pardon, you're right, who's Mr.Sinclar? there the link bigpondnews.com/articles/Top...
This was not considered a problem before the Chamberlain case highlighted it. It has to be believed: dingo.livingin-australia.com... > (I did a copy and paste with the original bigpond URL address but a '>' found its way into the middle somehow! bigpondnews.com/articles/Top... >) A rewrite maybe - and a new address.?
There are rules to being around wild animals. When people do not follow those rules they get hurt and then blame the animals. You can even end up with things like a bear in your house when you do not do things right. billingsgazette.com/news/loc...
Here is further info - from the victim. Sounds like a pretty nasty ordeal. news-mail.com.au/story/2012/... > He was really 'knocked around'. Not a pretty picture.
