Predatory Creatures in Australia

Setting: Modern day Australian Outback

I'm looking for some examples of Australian animals that are considered threats to livestock.  I've done searches on Google and Wikipedia for Australian Predators, Australian Carnivores, and Australian Fauna, and the best I could find was the dingo.

Is there anything larger?  Or anything else at all beyond the dingo?  Specifically, I'm working with a werewolf killing cattle, and I want to find an animal that a farmer could say "definitely an X attack"...

EDIT: Thanks, all!  I'm going to go with dingoes and feral dogs, and I'm probably going to shift the threatened livestock from cattle to sheep.  Makes my life easier, in the end, since my werewolf's leaving money for the farmers after they turn back into a human (a la Angua from Discworld) and a dead sheep probably won't make him go broke like paying for a dead cow.
