Is the theme of this due to the death of Azaria Chamberlain? This is a famous court case in Australia about the death of a baby that was apparently taken and killed by a dingo in 1980.

This game's theme has nothing to do with any real life event. It is a play on Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Babies scare Elephants
Elephants stomp Lions
Lions stalk Dingos
Dingos eat Babies

But is "Dingos eat Babies" a common saying, or is the 1980 event the origin of this?

The incident created the saying world-wide. The game is in bad taste even now. Azaria would be 35 years old had she not been eaten.
