Hey. That's not funny. That's a national tragedy. Like Fosters, which is NOT Austrailian for beer.

While I'm glad the mother's name was cleared, I've always asked myself: who goes camping with an eight week old baby?! Even if she didn't murder her child, taking an infant that young into the Australian outback with no means of communication seems really unwise. I almost wonder if she is guilty of negligence.

Welfare Xmas:

Well that only took 32 years.

And it cost them their marriage, time they could have spent grieving and then going on, their reputations...

My first thought was "What, again?!?" Then I saw it's the same damn case from 19farking80.

"'No longer will Australia be able to say that dingoes are not dangerous,'' [the mother] added. ''We live in a beautiful country but it is dangerous.''

Didn't Australia's white settlers realize dingoes were dangerous 300 years ago? And the natives several thousand years before that? Hell, people's pet dogs can be dangerous, let alone dogs that for 5000 years were never really tamed. Dingoes are basically half-way between wolves and dogs -- that are themselves domesticated and intentionally mutated wolves. Has anyone who's been bitten by a Chihuahua not been glad the dog was bred tiny? And I'm sure there have been cases where Chihuahuas have killed babes.

Shame. Shame.

So these people live in a country where there are amphibians, corals, fish, crocs, spiders and trees that are widely known to KILL people and they think that dingos are just like the cuddly border collie from down the street? Seriously?

Huh, I've never actually read the whole story. How sad. Well, I guess I knew it had to be sad, but this is SAD.

Oh for pete's sake. Don't be silly. People have been doing THAT since before us Homos got Sapient, and it's usually been safe enough. We're still here, right?

It ain't like she hogtied the baby and hung a pork chop around her neck so the dingo would prey with her.

Mumia has no business in that. The only thing wrong with the Mumia case is that he didn't get the needle 20 years ago. You need to stop listening to Rage Against The Machine, they're just a band.

Wow, we take the kids to the outback all the time. We obviously gotta be more careful.

Humans are stupid, especially city dwellers. They think every animal acts like the family dog, the critters from Disney movies, or what they see on America's Funniest Home Videos. Anything that's covered with fur is a cute poofy ball of adorable just waiting to be hugged and petted and have its picture taken with your kids. It's especially bad with wild versions of domesticated animals.

To answer your question, no. For any reasonable person, Australian or not, the proposition that a dingo could kill a baybay, is plausible.

They think a dinghy did it.
