Fraser Island dingo deliberately maimed: conservationists

THE apparently deliberate maiming of a Fraser Island dingo has prompted a call to ban unsupervised island visitors.

The Save Fraser Island Dingoes group said the female dingo was hit by a vehicle about 8.30am between Eurong and Dilli Village, with witnesses claiming an orange Pajero changed direction before hitting it.

The dingo was left in agony and had to be euthanised.

"She appeared to be feeding. The fate of her pups is unknown," a spokeswoman said.

Australian Independents leader Patricia Petersen called for immediate action to protect island dingoes and said it was
time to ban people from the island, except in guided groups.

Australian Wildlife Protection Council president Mary land Wilson described the incident as barbaric.

"When is all this cruelty going to stop on Fraser Island?" she said.
