    How much of a pest are the dingoes? Attack livestock I'm guessing?

    So much of a pest they 1080 them with baits. They attack the old and weak common to see calfs without ears and parts of there legs chewed off. I've seen cows stuck in mud alive with dingos eating them from the rear going in through there arse because its soft.

    Nasty bastards, have tried fox shooting down south, more cunning than dingoes or so i was told. Dingos, foxes, snakes, crocs, poisonous spiders, jellyfish and octopus. Lucky country indeed!
