Poisoned Fraser Island dingoes ate ‘human’s food’


THE Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is continuing to investigate after six dingoes were killed on Fraser Island.

"Each and every one of these dingoes presented with the same pathology that was consistent with poisoning, each one had human-sourced food in its stomach and each one was a young, healthy dog with no other signs of serious injury," Parks Minister Steven Miles said.

The Butchulla people were notified of the incident and a smoking ceremony for the dingoes has been held.
