Posted on 12/19/2011 1:59:40 PM PST by nickcarraway
The father of a baby who infamously vanished in the Australian Outback more than 30 years said Monday that he was confident a new inquiry into the tragedy will officially rule that a dingo took his daughter.
The disappearance of 9-week-old Azaria Chamberlain on Aug. 17, 1980, from a campsite near Ayers Rock, the red monolith in the Australian desert now known by its Aboriginal name Uluru, divided Australians between those who believed a native dog known as a dingo killed her and those who believed she was murdered by her mother, Lindy Chamberlain

In 99.99999% of the cases, when a baby ends up dead, it was the mommy who murdered her baby.

Here come the “Dingo ate the baby” jokes.
Who takes a 9-week-old camping?
I wouldn’t trust my dog with kids under 3 yr.
People who actually go outside once in awhile instead of pecking at their computers all day and watching the tube all night might do something like that.
Who keeps their ex's name?
being the Austrailian outback, they could have been first cousins before they married, just sayin!
you have some facts to back up this assertion?
I go outside multiple times daily and would never even think of planning a camping trip with a 9-week-old.
I would be shocked if someone even suggested it, no matter how many times they go outside.
Maybe this is it:
Ok, so I looked it up and she was born Alice Lynne Murchison and took the first husband’s name. That brings us back to who in blazes keeps their ex’s name? That’s just crazy. Husbands, in the USA (maybe the same there?), can put a condition in the divorce decree that the ex wife can no longer use his name so it seems they’re both agreeable to this lunacy. Perhaps it’s an “agenda” so that no one forgets who she was 30 years ago.
They aren't Nancy-boys over there.
“I wouldn’t trust my dog with kids under 3 years...”
And I am assuming you have a domesticated dog? Dingos are wild dogs, right? If I recall this case correctly, many Australians felt that Dingos wouldn’t kill a child and that was the reason for suspicion. Never understood that because a wild dog would see a baby as nothing more than food. IMHO.
What kind of rugged man needs his 9-week-old baby to go camping with?
You either never had a 9-week-old (who doesn’t even have neck control) or you never been camping (cold, dirt, bug-bites, dingos, etc).
Now I have to admit that currently my idea of roughing it is drinking a margarita made from a mix rather then fresh limes but different strokes for different folks.
