According to the Queensland Department of Environment and Science, the dingo had been categorised as “high-risk” following a number of other incidents including an attack on a six-year-old girl. 

The decision to euthanise the two-year-old dingo was a “significant step” made by the traditional owners of the land along with K’gari’s rangers.
