Dingo attack victim returns to island to finish holiday

THE two dingoes that attacked two Brisbane women on Fraser Island on Sunday still have not been identified.

A Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service representative said rangers were continuing their investigations.

One of the victims, Tessa Kemp, said the attacks on her and her sister Bay McGovern would not stop them from going back to the Island.

"I've been coming here every year for the past 20 years and I will keep coming back," Ms Kemp said.

She returned to the island on Monday to finish the two-week holiday after receiving stitches and antibiotics from doctors at Hervey Bay Hospital.

"One of the dingoes that attacked us had a red tag on its ear," Ms Kemp said.

"I've given the description to the rangers and it's up to them what they are going to do with them," she said.

Since July last year, 115 interactions involving dingoes on Fraser Island have been reported.
