Fraser Island dingo incident update

Fraser Island Dingo Update

Please attribute to a Department of Environment and Science (DES) spokesperson:

QPWS rangers on K’gari (Fraser Island) have captured the second dingo identified in the attack on three people on Thursday evening (28 February) near Eurong Beach.

Considering the seriousness of the incident, this dingo has been euthanised, in consultation with the Butchulla People.

Rangers continue to patrol at campgrounds and island arrival points to warn visitors of the dangers associated with dingoes.

Visitors are reminded never to approach or feed dingoes, as this can lead them to becoming habituated.
