It Turns Out a Dingo Really Did Eat the Woman’s Baby


A coroner has ruled that a dingo, a wild dog native to Australia, was responsible for the death of a 2-month-old Australian baby who disappeared from a tent in 1980 while her family was vacationing. “Dingos can and do cause harm to humans,” the coroner told the court on Tuesday. Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton, the girl’s mother, long insisted that a dingo took the baby, but a court sentenced her to life in prison. She was later exonerated and released. Years later, this happened on Seinfeld.
