A dingo’s tale of woe


We wish to comment on an article titled “A Dingo’s Tale” in the Independent (24/01/2018) which reduced both myself and my husband to tears.

The article reported the senseless killing by a “Ranger” of a part dingo who had been showing signs of affiliation with humans in particular Mr Stephen Otton, author and photographer.

It was reported the Ranger claims that the dog menaced him (the dog no doubt felt threatened locked in a cage as he was when the Ranger shot him at point blank range).

We feel certain there are many other animal lovers like ourselves who would express the same sentiments.
