Sheep killer pays the price. Horace Curley (right), "regional dogger" employed by the state government to control dingoes, or wild dogs, emerges from the bush with his trap and its grisly prize. Strychnine in the trap ensured a quick death. Fence-post signs (be low) mark the dogger's 1,000-mile trapline east of Carnarvon. Camp ing with his van and his swag near Mount Sandiman (below), "Horry" cleaves mutton chops with an ax. Apparently brought to Australia as pets and hunting partners by Asian ancestors of the Aborigines, dingoes are condemned by sheepmen as a major menace to their flocks.
