2 July - Adcock Gorge to Station Creek at Mt Barnett

Injured dingo. This is the only picture i took today. I must be getting tired of hauling out my camera. But about this poor dingo... He wasn't sitting up like this when i rode past but my approach alarmed him somewhat. He can't get up and run away. He's obviously been hit by a vehicle. His condition must be made worse by the stress of vehicles passing by him so close so often and probably i am not the only one to stop for a closer look. I hope someone might soon put him out of his misery with a gun. I did that once when i was in india. I called a vet to get a dog put down after it had been hit by a rickshaw most probably. No one around seemed interested or capable in helping the dog (I watched a whole procession of locals parade past on their way to sunday church, not one even glancing at the dog) and i wouldn't be able to nurse it. I thought it would die of thirst. In the end though i regretted what i had done because i think in trying to catch the poor dog (to my surprise it was able to get up and run away), i caused it more injury and pain than it might otherwise have had if i'd left it to die more slowly. And who knows someone may have come along and taken pity. Its doubtful anyone would take pity and feed and nurse this dingo back to health but i had no resources to do anything anyway.

lisamnz yeah, aw. :-( never nice to see animals suffer especially when it's 'our' fault.
