Ms Peet will require further treatment for her injuries. 

Senior ranger Linda Behrendorff said all four of the dingoes are currently being closely monitored following the attack with one of the dingoes being deemed “high risk” after having been involved in a separate attack. 

Ms Behrendorff said a decision is yet to be made as to the future of the “high risk” dingo with the last dingo euthanised back in 2019.
