NEWCASTLE, Australia, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Authorities in Australia said a dingo stole a bag containing several thousand dollars in cash and valuables from a British tourist.
Police said the 58-year-old tourist, whose name was not released, was visiting Jimmys Beach, just north of Newcastle in New South Wales, Wednesday when the dingo ran off with her bag of cash and jewelry, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Monday.
"The offending dingo was photographed by witnesses and was clearly identified as having one leg predominantly white," Port Stephens Crime Manager Acting Inspector Matthew Maroney said.
He said the dingo, which has been the subject of numerous complaints in recent months, was found and killed. However, he said the bag of valuables was not found.
