What price a life? Man faces just one month jail after his vicious dogs kill four year old riding her bike

 

9PM.jpg

 

A four year old girl out playing innocently on her bicycle was savagely mauled to death by three dogs that got out of a neighbor's yard. 

 

Yet the dog owner could face little more than a small fine or a short jail term.

 

When Ban Khawao, Chaiyaphum, police arrived in the soi behind some houses they found a lot of blood on the walkway and in the grass.

 

Little Thanyaluk Salitakun's pink bicycle was on its side. The four year old died on the way to hospital from her injuries and massive blood loss. 

 

Next door neighbor Noppapon Kunthanawat, 57, said he was watching TV in his house about 5pm on Tuesday when he heard the girl's screams. 

 

He rushed out and saw the dogs savaging the girls neck and head. He managed to beat the dogs off and they ran into nearby houses. 

 

By this time Thanyaluk was bleeding profusely and lying still in the grass. She was rushed to hospital but it was too late.

 

Noppapon said that the dogs responsible for the attack were kept in pens in a neighbor's house. They were a pregnant Thai dog breed, a male Thai dog breed and a poodle. 

 

They were aged about 2-3 years each. 

 

The girl's grandmother said that she was looking after her two grandchildren and was preparing food at the time. Their mum, a teacher, had not come back from work yet. 

 

Thanyaluk had gone out to play on her bike in the soi as she always did. 

 

She said that the owner of the dogs was a good neighbor but he had yet to take responsibility for what happened. She wanted the incident to be a warning to dog owners to always keep their pets inside the house. 

 

The dog's owner - 27 year old Piyanat Daengsoi - has initially been charged with an offence related to allowing fierce animals out in the street where they could do harm.

 

For this he would face a maximum of one month in jail or a 10,000 baht fine. 

 

If negligence could be proven he could be in more serious trouble, said Pol Lt-Col Thongsuk Ratseewor. 

 

The owner and the little girl's relatives will be re-interviewed following her cremation. 

 

No mention was made in the Thai Rath article about the fate of the dogs.

Any dog that bites should be put down. Deciding on the fate of these beasts should be a no brainer. But TIT. Alls dog roaming the soi should be captured and owners heavily fined when they pick them up. Unclaimed animal put to sleep if unclaimed for a week. 

That leaves the ferals that must be removed systematically.

4000 years for stealing money....7-10 for murdering wife and child...one month for allowing your dog to kill a kid........is Thailand' justice system working to global standards?

Bet they don't put them down. There should be stiffer penalties for dog owners who are not responsible and some types of dog need banning. Many people here just have these dogs and basically lock them up as prisoners in a small area and the dogs go mad being confined. Reminds me of a house up the road from me, 2 pitbulls that look like they were bought off Satan, left to run around the small garden and bark viciously at anything that goes past. If they got loose then the adults aren't safe, let alone the kids riding their bikes around all the time. I see little need to have such things with such a bad disposition...although, the wife reckons they have them as there is money in the house and are up to something illegal (cheap security), which wouldn't surprise me at all.

I feel so sorry for that poor little girl, what a horrible way to go and at such a young age.

 

Life's just not fair sometimes, and her parents and family have to live with this forever while the dog owner gets a pathetic fine that most people could blow on a good night out. Or a short stay in the Bangkok Hilton, neither is very terrifying

 

Life's definatley not fair

Baby gets chewed up by a rabid dog and now this little girl has this horrible ending  (and countless other stories). On a brighter note, ground pork and rat poison are both on sale at Makro this week...........

Thing is every single moron has a dog here. Worst part they never train them, never teach them what is right or wrong. I was bitten once by a dog that came out from someone's house. My daughter was cycling next to me at that time. I told him if it bites my kid I will break it's neck.  Later they came to apologize and offered to pay for the vaccine. However, 2 months in and their gate is still open while dog roams free around the streets. 

Use your car and blame it on "brake failure".

Kill all soi dogs....kill dogs that attack humans and heavily fine owners that allow their dogs to roam unattended........

It's 2018.....people should not be attacked and savaged by dogs!

Why?  I would do the same.

This is only one instance of an uncaring, self entitled world that is rapidly going down the moral toilet.

Agree totally.  What is most disturbing is the penchant that so many young people have today for the savage breeds e.g. the American Pit Bull.  

If I had my way the entire breed would be sent into extinction.
