Saturday 17 November 1934, The Sydney Morning Herald

DORRIGO Friday

Mr. Arthur Mate, a young farmer of Dome Mount, poisoned two huge dingoes during the week. One measured 5ft, 3in from the tip of the tail to the nose, and the other just over 5ft. Mate saw the dogs chasing some young cattle about the farm and next day discovered they had killed a well-grown yearling heifer which they had partly eaten. He says there is another big dog in the vicinity, the king of the pack which haunts the gorges surrounding the plateau. He has seen it on several occasions, and considers that it would measure more than six feet.
