(ABC Australia) The RSPCA is seeking to stop dingoes being used to kill feral goats on Pelorus Island in north Queensland.
The animal welfare organisation will appeal to Biosecurity Queensland's ethics committee to revoke its approval for the project, according to Mark Townend, the RSPCA's chief executive officer.
"By sticking some wild dogs in a situation where those goats will be eaten, partly eaten and then left to die a horrible painful death is the wrong attitude for 2016," he said.

As reported on Landline, Hinchinbrook Shire Council this month released two male, desexed dingoes onto the Great Barrier Reef island in a bid to eradicate 300 feral goats which are destroying an endangered coastal ecosystem.
