This shot has never been a best seller, but when I heard the story I had to take a photo… I just had to.
In the country there is an inherent problem of wild dogs that live in the state and private forests that survive at times by attacking local live stock, mostly sheep. The wild dogs are a mixture of dingo and also domestic animals gone wild that were used for pig hunting and left by their owners when they don’t come back. The damage is quite horrific and cost to the farmer adds up quickly. Over night a pack of dogs can easily kill 50 sheep and their lambs.
Well one elderly farmer many many years ago had taken to trapping and skinning the wild dogs and with their carcase he would then hang on a tree. He still does this even now.
Over time this kind of strange tradition had became a town story and the road the tree is on was named “Dog Tree Road”
Only in the country.
