A DINGO has tried to drag a teenage girl away from her parents while she was in her sleeping bag at a camping ground in the Northern Territory.
Rebecca Robinson, 13, was startled by the dingo after she woke up to find it dragging her from her parents' caravan at Aurora Kakadu Lodge, the Northern Territory News reports.
Her mother Kate Robinson said she now understands how a dingo could have taken Lindy Chamberlain's daughter, Azaria, in 1980.
"We have been talking about it constantly saying how we can totally understand how that can happen.
"Rebecca weighs 45 to 50 kilograms - they are that strong and bold," Mrs Robinson said.
The Northern Territory News said it was the fourth recent attack on campers by wild dogs at the Aurora Kakadu Lodge.
