A woman has taken to social media to help her identify a mystery animal she found whimpering in her backyard.  

The woman said she woke up to the sound of an animal whimpering in her back yard in her home in Bright, 320km northeast of Melbourne, Yahoo News reported. 

The Facebook user thought she had found a fox or a dog on her property, which is a block set in the bush and so has wildlife nearby.

‘I woke up this morning hearing a whimpering on my bush block, l can’t tell if it’s a fox or a dog,’ she wrote to the Facebook group page. 

The woman said she often hears dingoes howling in the distance but felt she had either found a fox or a dog, many people seemed to think she found a fox. 

‘I reckon it’s a fox and you’ve got a little problem,’ one user responded. 

Before getting the chance to take the animal to a vet to get it positively identified, the woman took to the Facebook group page to reveal what she had found. 

‘It’s a wild dingo,’ she wrote. 

Sydney Dingo Rescue contacted the woman to let her know she had indeed found a wild dingo pup in her own yard. 

The advice given to her was to take the animal in an open box back into the bush around her home and to leave it there, with hopes its family would return for it. 

The dingo is Australia’s only native canid and is protected in national parks under the Nature Conservation Act 1992.

However in some areas of Queensland they are classified as a pest.
