CANBERRA - Australia's most wanted man was captured holed-up in a lonely mountain cabin on Thursday after seven years on the run during which time he lived in rugged wilderness often like an animal.

Malcolm Naden, an Aboriginal bush survival expert and murder suspect, had been compared with Australia's most famous 19th century bushranger Ned Kelly for his ability to elude police, at one stage narrowly escaping after shootout at a farmhouse.

Naden, 38, often broke into empty, isolated farmhouses to gain supplies before returning to inaccessible bushland, but in the early hours of Thursday the cat and mouse game ended when police surrounded a house in the rugged Barrington Tops a few hours drive north of Sydney.

Despite being surrounded by heavily armed police Naden made a dash to escape, but was brought down by a police dog which dragged him to the ground by his leg.
