It is said that a man nicknamed the Robinson Crusoe of Australia is distressed after his best friend, a dingo named Polly, died.

David Glasheen was the high chairman of a mining company in the 1980s, before a market collapse led him to lose his fortune.

He decided to change the life of the city for isolation and has lived on the Restoration Island in the northern Cape of York for the past two decades, with only his first dog Quassi and Polly for company.

Quassi died two years ago after being bitten by a taipan and Mr. Glasheen, looking for a way to deal with the loss, formed a bond with the wild dingo.

Ten days ago, Mr. Glasheen found Polly's body on the beach with foam around his mouth and two small bite marks, this time he thinks he was a dying man judging by the size of the bite, reports news.com .au.

Álvaro Cerezo filmed Mr. Glasheen's life as a castaway in 2017 for a documentary and said he is currently "very sad at this time because his two best friends died in a short period of time."

In addition to his annual grocery store in Cairns, Mr. Glasheen lives alone on the island.

& # 39; Savage is pretty severe. It's a difficult world. Things are always going badly, and you have to deal with that, "Glasheen told News.com.au in 2017.

& # 39; You have to work with the elements. People assume you turn on the tap and the water comes out. You begin to realize that it is not like that. You're in charge of all that here.
