More threatening Fraser dingo interactions this summer

AN INCREASE in threatening dingo behaviour on Fraser Island has been recorded this summer compared to the previous corresponding period.

The Queensland Department of National Parks records showed from December 2014 to the end of February 2015, there were 18 threatening interactions and one high-risk interaction.

From December 2013 to the end of February 2014, there were 15 threatening interactions and two high-risk interactions recorded.

There have been no dingoes euthanised on the island since January 1.

A spokeswoman said there had been no recent recorded interactions of dingoes demonstrating threatening or high-risk behaviour.

"Rangers continue to patrol and undertake 'be dingo-safe' camper briefs to help ensure visitors know how to behave if they encounter a dingo when on Fraser Island," she said.
