A boy has been mauled by dingoes on the Queensland island of K'gari. The eight-year-old sustained wounds on the buttocks and lower back at around 7.30pm on July 1 while walking on the beach with his family. He fell over and was bitten and scratched before his father shielded him. He was taken to hospital in a stable condition. Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service rangers are investigating the incident. This comes just weeks after the state government issued a warning for tourists to keep their distance from the animals. IN OTHER NEWS: Ranger Danielle Mansfield said some dingoes on the island weren't showing any wariness of people. "These animals are capable of inflicting serious harm, and they have bitten children and adults, and some are quite brazen and are not fleeing when yelled at or when someone brandishes a stick," she said. Ms Mansfield said kids were not properly supervised. "On K'gari, this means children and teenagers must be within arm's reach of an adult at all times, even if you can't see any dingoes in the area," she said. A dingo responsible for string of attacks, including biting a seven-year-old boy on June 1 and a 42-year-old woman on June 4, was euthanised last month. A French tourist was bitten on the buttocks in April. The growing number of incidents has heightened concerns that the animals were becoming less fearful of humans. Ms Mansfield said that was because tourists were feeding the dingoes. "People who think it is harmless to throw a sausage or discarded bait or fish frame to the dingoes have caused the current and historic problems we are having with these dingoes," she said. "Rangers have observed them lingering around camping areas and parked vehicles and that means they're trying to solicit food from visitors because they've previously been fed. "This has to stop now, and people have to make their personal safety and the safety of their friends and families a priority," she said.
