Yes, they howl like a wolf and don't bark. Dingoes are seen or heard
fairly regularly along Springwood and Faulconbridge Ridges and along the
Grose River to the north. They seem to be attracted to the animal
enclosures at St Columba's High School on Springwood Ridge and Father
Peter Connelly who lives on the premises sees and hears them often.

A dingo? In the Blueys? Preposterous. Do they have a distinctive howl?
Could have a lot of fun trying to track that down, it'd be a great one
for my BMCC list.
