How many dog attacks were reported
in one year, in Cairns?
We have a Eco-Fiesta winner!
Chloe Schafer wins with the closest number 620. Guesses ranged from 20-3000! Which goes to show, as one of you said:
"We have no idea. Do we?"
Here's the breakdown:
- 120 are attacks on people
- 250 are attacks on pets and other animals
- 350 are frightening threats with emotional harm.
Dogs are mainly killing other animals. And they are a major direct threat to our remaining 1200 cassowary. Cassowary are a keystone species for rainforest survival.Read more
