A One Nation MP faced intense backlash after killing a wild dog and sharing a photo of the dead animal on social media.

Stephen Andrew, who represents Mirani’s north Queensland headquarters, shared the photo on Facebook on Tuesday.

The photo showed the lifeless dog displayed on the crash bar of a white Toyota Prado 4WD.

Andrew’s wrote that “a wild dog mauled and killed a $25,000 ram” which was trying to protect the herd.

“It was so good that he (the dog) came back for seconds,” she wrote.

“In fact, I let him into the dog-proof fencing area earlier and was prematurely reunited with his creator.”

Andrew added that the wild dogs in the area had become bolder and were getting closer to the livestock every day.

The post divided social media users, with some criticizing the politician for killing the mixed-breed wild dog, which some said looked like a dingo.

“Despicable human… what’s wrong with you killing wildlife and doing it without being aware of its value to our ecosystem?” one commented.

‘Above all, these magnificent predators have been here for thousands of years… they are sentient beings. This behavior smacks of sociopathy.

Another person argued that the killing would have repercussions on native wildlife and the local food chain.

‘What a shame! “This is Australia’s only apex predator and because of narrow minded heads like you, dingoes will eventually become extinct,” they wrote.

‘Look, the numerous herbivores we have (native and wild), their numbers will explode, if they disappear.

‘Find other solutions to protect your livestock, rather than thinking that culling is the answer to all solutions… also, keep making up stories that you are a hybrid.

“It’s just an excuse to cull dingoes.”

Others claimed the online boast was irresponsible for a local politician as it would encourage others to cull dingoes.

“This dingo became a problem for you and you solved it,” one wrote.

“Sharing it publicly in this way will likely encourage others without deeper knowledge to kill dingoes indiscriminately, which will only further aggravate the problem in the long term.”

Andrew defended his actions, claiming the dog was a mixed breed and that he does not use wild dog bait to protect his livestock.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Andrew has done anything illegal.

The post divided social media users, with some labeling the Queensland politician a “despicable human”. Andrew defended his actions by claiming that the mongrel had killed a prized ram.

“In the last 12 months, at night on days off, I have removed 259 feral pigs, managed to relocate two saltwater crocodiles that were over 4 meters long and removed a feral dog,” said Mr Andrew .

“I’m very selective in what I do… others cover the bait with 1080 because frustrations arise and when this happens, the unintended consequences cannot be measured.”

Others applauded Mr Andrew’s actions, with many stating that wild animals needed to be killed to protect livestock and native wildlife.

‘Well done, I applaud these animals coming in and killing domestic animals, they are now classed as WILD!’ one commented

“Any animal that is not domestic should be eliminated: dogs, pigs, cats, toads, etc., as they cause irreparable damage to agriculture, the environment, flora and fauna, not to mention diseases,” wrote a second .

“Hold on, Stephen Andrew, you are doing a great job and service to the community.”

A third chimed in: ‘Well done friend! A sacrifice needs to be made, especially in the valley region. “These wild dogs are a big problem.”
