Two dingoes that mauled a 3-year-old girl on an Australian beach Monday, April 25, 2011, have been caught and were to be destroyed, officials said. The girl suffered bites to her legs when the native wild dogs attacked her Monday after she wandered away from her family and into sand dunes on Fraser Island in northeastern Queensland state. Environment Department general manager Terry Harper said the two dogs blamed for the attack were trapped Tuesday, April 26, 2011  and would be humanely destroyed. (AP Photo/Russell McPhedran, File)

    In a case that gripped much of the Australian public in 1980, a coroner ruled there Tuesday morning that Azaria Chamberlain was killed by a dingo. Azaria’s mother and her husband were originally jailed for the 2-month-old’s killing after the girl went missing on a family camping trip in August 1980. While both adults were exonerated in 1987, coroner Elizabeth Morris said Tuesday that a dingo was the most likely cause of Azaria’s death. The girl’s official death certificate will be changed as Morris said that the evidence was “adequate, clear, cogent, and exact” that Azaria was taken by a dingo.
