Should this dingo die over a child bite on Fraser Island?

THE community is concerned a dingo that attacked a child on Fraser Island on Monday, biting it on the buttocks, may be killed as a result. 

Chronicle reader Ashley Flanders feels sorry for the dingo.

"It will be shot and the parents who couldn't watch their kid will get away with nothing after failing to comply with the hundreds of warning signs on the island," Ashley said. 

Hollie Lauren said she hoped the little boy was okay but hopes the dingo is't destroyed.

"Have grown up going to Fraser and never encountered a problem.. something needs to change and it's certainly not the dingoes," she said.

"Tourist needs to be held accountable and need to listen when they are being educated about safety on the island... be responsible."

Shannon Robertson questioned what the child's parents were doing prior to the incident.
