  1. Adorable? Are u fucking kidding? When the dingos steal and eat your baby and animals, are they adorable? Stupid videos.

  2. These aren’t dingos. These are feral dogs an invasive species that is pushing and interbreeding the dingo to extinction. Terrible video lol get your facts straight

  3. They are the most important predator in the Australian ecosystem, as they kill invasive species such as horses, camels and cats, which cause hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of environmental damage each year. To the farmers that are praised for killing dingoes, it was also farmers that killed Thylacines (Tasmanian tigers) to extinction solely due to the dear that they may kill sheep. If one cares about Australia's natural ecosystem, than you need to understand the importance of dingoes and the harm done by farmers

  4. The black one is likely a hybrid between feral domestic dogs and native dingoes, since I don't believe that pattern exists in natural dingoes. It would be sad if these animals would go extinct

  5. "Due to perceived attacks on animals." Honey, there's no perceiving about it. Dingos are a vicious introduced species that plague farmers incessantly. Farmers work harder than anyone, the last thing they need is more havoc. Unless you don't want to eat.
