A hotel employee in Cha-Am is facing two years in jail after he was caught on CCTV shooting a stray dog under a car at the hotel.

 

He told police that the dog had been chasing tourists and had been biting them. 

 

Earlier Oranut, 35, a representative of dog lovers Watchdog Thailand had gone to Cha-Am police with CCTV footage and called for the man's arrest. 

 

A contingent of cops arrested Jomphon, 25, at the hotel that was not named. 

 

They took a 9mm gun and 43 bullets into evidence. 

 

Jomphon admitted that he had shot the dog that was cowering under a car at the hotel on 9th January. The dog had been chasing and biting tourists and after he was criticized for not doing his job properly he got angry and shot the animal. 

 

He apologized for this. 

 

He was charged with having an unlicensed gun and shooting in a public place. 

 

He also faces animal cruelty charges that carry a prison sentence of 2 years or a fine of 40,000 baht or both.

For the dog lovers or for the guy who shot the dog?

Wasn't too long ago a dog with rabies was running around  Hua Hin biting  numerous people when it died in the street foaming at the mouth. 

When and where was this?  Do you have links to any reliable reports of the incident?
