The first report of a 'wild dog' in Australia was made by the Dutchman, Jan Cartenzoon near Cape Keer, Queensland 8 May 1623;

'I went ashore myself with 10 musketeers we saw numerous footprints of men and dogs (running from south to north) we accordingly spent some time there, following the footprints to a river...we also saw great numbers of dogs, herons and curlews...'
