The moon travelled from the east, he saw down below that the two dingoes were chasing an emu. The moon felt sorry for the emu, so he decided to help the emu. He called out to the emu and gave directions to keep him away from the two dingoes who were chasing him. The moon lead the emu to Lake Stetch, where finally the dingoes caught up to the emu. The emu struggled to run away, but the dingoes were eager to kill the emu, so they killed it. The dingoes fought over the emu as to who was going to eat it. Finally they both ate it. After that the moon dropped murungkut (little men) along the way. This is how Lake Stretch was formed.
