YOUR SAY: Readers outraged by decision to euthanise dingoes

THE news a dingo has been euthanised after it attacked a tourist on Fraser Island has left our readers outraged.  

A tourist was bitten by the dingo several times in an incident at Eurong on Friday last week.  

Bobby-lee Hale believes tourists should learn not to encourage the "poor dingos".

"These animals don't know any better, and this is our communities fault to start with...so shouldn't we fix it instead of burying our heads in the sand?" she said. 

Jocelyn Osborne suggested "humanly euthanising" humans who can't understand "stay away".

"We have never had any issues with them because we see a dingo and use this thing called a brain," she said. 

Outraged by the news, Victoria Clarke questioned what the tourist did to the dingo.

Kylie Salmon said "Tourists feed the cute "doggies" and wonder why they get bitten."

"They are a wild animals, people need to remember to treat them as such," she said.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service Sunshine and Fraser Coast Principal Ranger Ross Belcher said at first the the couple thought the dingo was being playful but it then became aggressive and bit the woman four times.
