Man says he's not to blame for Fraser Island dingo attack

THE victim of a dingo attack on Fraser Island has defended himself on social media, posting a status on Facebook saying he did not provoke the incident.

Dane Allan, a chef on Fraser Island, posted the comments to his Facebook page on Thursday.

"I didn't provoke the dingoes but yet the media still puts all blame on me," the status read.

Mr Allan, 25, was left with bite wounds to his head, neck, back, arms and legs after three dingoes attacked him while he walked alone on the beach at Happy Valley on Monday night.

Mr Allan was able to get behind a dingo-proof fence and call for help before being assisted by paramedics on the island.

In another post on social media, Mr Allan acknowledged that the incident happened in the dingoes' natural habitat and said he didn't blame all dingoes, just the three that attacked him.

"The media has no idea what I went through that night and the impact it's left on me," he wrote.

Mr Allan asked for media to leave him alone so he could recover from his injuries, which he said included "stitches and wounds".

He said after the incident blew over he would post photos of the injuries he had suffered on Facebook, but that wouldn't be for at least another three weeks.

"I will return to work once I can correctly walk once again," Mr Allan said.

The posts were later removed from Facebook.

Mr Allan, a Hervey Bay resident, worked at the Beach House Hotel as an apprentice chef before starting work at the Fraser Island Retreat at Happy Valley about eight months ago.

In 2012, a German tourist was also seriously mauled by dingoes while walking alone at night.
