The dingo menace in Western Queensland shouffJ ease with the breaking oJ the drought,
Lands Department officials said.
Dingoes which had accumu lated round the few remaining water holes as surface water dried up would probably scat ter again, they said.
One ol the hardest hit sheep properties has been Carandotta station, 70 miles west of -Da jarra. In the last two years, 800 dingoes have been killed
The manager (Mr. Ted Maule) thinks that when the water ~ holes in the Northern Territory dried up, the dingoes found their way across to the sheep country Carandotta, be
ins the 'furthest western sheep property suffered most.
