Dingoes Rule Australia

The dingo is known for being Australia’s wild dog, although it is said to be descended from Asian dingoes that were introduced 3,000 to 4,000 years ago. Australians consider them to be pests because there are so many of them. In fact, there are most likely more dingoes today than Europeans when they first settled the land. While there are many, studies say that one-third of southeastern Australian dingoes are interbred with domestic dogs.
