One thousand dingoes have been trapped on Fraser Island since 2001.There needs to be an urgent overhaul of the dingo plan.

The management of dingoes on Fraser Island  and the cruel death of a Fraser Island dingo during a government- sanctioned experiment last year has many people questioning the unfortunate event.

Dingo activists like Jennifer Parkhurst is supported by Jane Goodall who said “ the current approach to dingo management on Fraser Island has created enormous suffering as a result of a government-driven management program compiled without proper research. She is “ deeply “saddened “by the dingoes plight.

The report details that the dingo suffered extensive bruising, particularly around the throat and genitals, as well as hemorrhaging to the thorax, limbs, neck, eye and lumbar region.It appeared to have struggled against strangulation, while being strangled by a pole-noose and a pinning device. The necropsy states that the dingo was in good health prior to dying.
