The dingo animal behaviour appears to be a response to an abundant and panicky prey in flight. Such dingo animal attacks and harassment may cause severe losses to pastoralists. Mostly dingo animal usually attack rams from the rear, most likely to avoid the ram’s horns, which are used for defence.
Groups or packs of dingo animal also attack and kill young cattle. Calf losses to dingo animal predation are reported to be significant in some areas.
