Fraser Islands Pure Dingoes
Anna Bligh’s Traveston Dam of the Barrier
100% of Mainland Wild Dogs in Australia are considered infected with Echinococcus, an extreme and not uncommonly deadly disease for humans, spread by an ever growing explosive number of hybrid wild dogs across the entire continent of Australia.
A dangerous spread almost entirely facilitated on a daily basis by wild dog infected faeces drying in the sun on the ground, then wind blown as that infected faeces dust and equally, poor personal hygiene management by humans, this ugly, insidious disease cycle, reaches man.
With eastern Australia and especially Queensland under siege from wild dogs rampaging on and up to the very back-door steps of suburbia throughout the States, poison baits once only used in an attempt to arrest rural destruction, are now coming closer to those gates of metropolitan Australia. Baits are officially being dispensed by the bucketful to rural interface sectors in Queensland in an attempt to thwart the suburban onslaught of wild dog predation on pets and domestic stock; and without mentioning it, human disease affliction; Bundaberg, the town of rum, being one of the latest in siege news.
Premier Anna Bligh and Minister Kate Jones of Queensland Government fame, have the one last bastion of Australian territory other than Tasmania, possibly free from this ugly and life threatening offensive insidious disease, of which the human contraction risk grows equally and exponentially, with the immense increase in the mainland wild dog population explosion.
This bastion is World Heritage Listed Fraser Island where some of the last surviving, genetically pure, Australian Dingoes struggle to survive and yet the Bligh government has failed in providing any barriers of protection, not just, for the F I Dingoes, but for the half million tourists as well and there is no transparent research available. At the time of this story, not even a mention in their brand new website on Fraser Dingoes. A web site obviously set up to clean egg off their face, not to protect the Island and its visitors from a deadly disease of the mainland.
From 1987-1992 in NSW alone, [a decade ago] a study showed 321 treatments for this disease were noted. Why, did they need the study. This disease, has been removed from the NSW mandatory health reporting program. yet it is uglier than Swine Flu, more pervasive than H5N1, more catastrophic than the Hendra Virus and unlike BSE (mad cow disease), covers mainland Australia like a blanket.
This disease(Hydatid Granulosus), is a real and most serious potential pandemic for the Australian mainland public and tourists who visit our shores alike, yet every politician hides from even a mention of this health risk, let alone a long term death sentence for your children, and like Minister Kate Jones, their best science, clearly tells them, the big “H” (Hydatid), is a nationally most serious, public health issue.
