Mum praised for bravery in fighting off dingo after attack on son at Karijini National Park

A mother has been praised for her bravery after fighting off a dingo that attacked and injured her two-year-old son at Karijini National Park as the wild animal remains “at large”.

The boy sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries when set upon by the dingo about 7pm on Friday at Dales Campground, about 100km east of Tom Price in the Pilbara.

He has since been released from Tom Price Hospital, the WA Country Health Service said on Sunday.

Premier Mark McGowan told reporters that was “great news” as he praised the boy’s mother for her bravery.

“His mother courageously fought off the dingo so she deserves our congratulations and she’s obviously a very brave person,” he said on Sunday.
