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.

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
