A FLY-IN fly-out worker mauled by three dingoes at an East Pilbara minesite is in Royal Perth Hospital with deep wounds to her legs, arms and body. The 54-year-old was sitting having a sandwich at an outdoor barbecue area โ€” a designated safe eating place โ€” at the Telfer Mine on Wednesday when a young dingo approached, her family says.

Knowing the animal would likely try to take the food, and that feeding dingoes results in instant dismissal from the site, she put her food in a rubbish bin.Her family says as she was doing that, the dingo took off with her mobile phone.

She followed and saw the phone discarded in a bush.Her family said she decided not to grab the phone when she saw two other dingoes nearby and instead turned to walk away.Her family said that was when the three dingoes launched their attack, biting her legs and arms as she tried desperately to stay on her feet and screamed for help.
