Four-year-old boy bitten by dingo on Fraser Island, within month of attack on toddler
A four-year-old boy has been left with a graze to his thigh after being bitten by a dingo on Fraser Island.
He was with another boy, aged five, at an Orchid Beach home on the island, also known as K’gari, when they were approached by a dingo on Saturday.
The animal sniffed one of the boys, prompting them to run towards the house before the bite occurred.
“The boy received two small red marks and a slight graze to his thigh, but didn’t require medical treatment,” Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The parents chased the dingo into the bush, and it snarled at them and didn’t want to leave the area.”
