AUSSIE OGER's Is it True?? (The Dingo Ate My BABY)

Dingoes ate my baby

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"A dingo ate my baby" is a phrase attributed to Lindy Chamberlain and also to Meryl Streep's depiction of Chamberlain in the movie A Cry in the Dark (1988) – also known as Evil Angels – about the death of Azaria Chamberlain, an Australian baby girl who died in 1980 at Uluru in the Northern Territory. The Chamberlain family had been vacationing at Uluru when their daughter was taken from their tent by a dingo. The authorities disbelieved the family's story about a dingo, and prosecuted and won convictions against Lindy Chamberlain for murder and against her then-husband Michael Chamberlain as an accessory after the fact. Ultimately, the courts found both parents innocent, and the coroner found Azaria's death was "the result of being attacked and taken by a dingo".[1]

The phrase "A dingo ate my baby" was not actually used by Chamberlain, nor is it used in the film. Chamberlain is reported to have called out to her husband, "a dingo took my baby",[2] or either “That dog’s got my baby” or “My God, My God, a dingo has got my baby.”[1] In the film, Streep's character, upon discovering her daughter missing, cries out, "A dingo's got my baby."

Do these things really run around eating human babies???

Rear Naked Toke - Yeah they're like coyotes so if one of them got your baby they'd be fucked. The incident in question happened on Fraser island a few decades ago. Originally the mother was arrested under suspicion of murder but i bielive they found some remains which exonerated her. Phone Post 3.0
It happened at Uluru (Ayers Rock) not Fraser Island but there are a number of attacks on Fraser island. Phone Post 3.0

Yep. A number of years ago I back packed around Australia and visited Fraser Island. I didn't see any dingoes but I had heard they can be dangerous. I remember it was around a year or so before or after I was there that a young girl (6 or 7) I think was attacked and killed while camping there with family.

Coyotes don't eat people's babies. On a side note I've had several random people stop me to ask if my dog is a dingo. Now I just say yes. Phone Post 3.0

Aren't dingoes bigger? Phone Post 3.0

I always found this line to be a fascinating insight into how retarded humans are with what they choose to be offended by.

A woman had her baby eaten by a wild dog, only to be wrongfully accused of murder for 25 years, and the whole thing was mainly just laughed about because of a fictional quote and Australian accents.

Just kind of odd that it is culturally acceptable to laugh about that, but put blackface on a shitty Aussie TV show and American media loses its shit.

Fascinating where lines get drawn sometimes.

Somewhat common? I don't think so. There are coyotes here in the city and they're not attacking anyone. Here's on riding our mass transit.
