Goliath and Dingo confront it in the Dreamtime, and Dingo convinces it to pursue law and order.

Tidbits

As knowledgeable fans have pointed out, the script misused the term "Dreamtime" here, treating the Dreamtime as if it was another dimension. In fact, the Dreamtime of actual Australian Aborigine legend was a time, the time when the world was newly created and going through the processes that would shape it into its familiar form.
