K’gari dingo attack Fraser Island: Father’s brave move on Queensland island

A two-year-old boy was bitten by a dingo on K’gari as his family was trying to get into the car after seeing his father chase the dog away.

The family was leaving Lake McKenzie on the island, formerly known as Fraser Island, and was in the car park when the father saw the dingo near the right side of the car on Thursday afternoon.

He told his family to get into the left side of the car, but the dingo walked across the road before approaching the front of the vehicle.

According to the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, the dingo ran in front of the car and bit the two-year-old on the right thigh, leaving two puncture wounds on his leg.

The father chased the dingo away from the family.

The family traveled to Eurong and reported the incident to rangers before traveling to the Kingfisher Resort on the island for further treatment for the boy’s injuries.

K’gari rangers are now attempting to identify the untagged female dingo (wongari) who bit the boy and are patrolling the area around Lake McKenzie.

Parks and wildlife rangers continue to patrol the area and are attempting to identify the dingo, which is not tagged and is believed to be female.

Visitors and residents are asked to remain vigilant and keep children at a safe distance from the animal.

They are warned not to let children walk alone or carry sticks on the island.
