It's Official: The Dingos Did It

Dingo took Azaria Chamberlain, coroner find

Coroner Elizabeth Morris told a packed courtroom today that a dingo was to blame for the attack at Uluru, which originally saw Azaria's mother Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton jailed for murder and her husband Michael given a suspended sentence for being an accessory after the fact.

Both were later exonerated after a royal commission in 1987.

"We are relieved and delighted to come to the end of this saga," she said.

"No longer will Australia be able to say the dingoes are not dangerous and will only attack if provoked."

"We live in a beautiful country but it is dangerous and we'd ask all Australians to be aware of this and take appropriate precautions."
