2 years in prison for shooting a mad soi dog, while traffic maniacs get away with some simple lies. It's so irrational it has to be something religious. Next thing the dogs are protected by the defamation laws.

The charges are in respect to possessing an illegal firearm  and in discharging the weapon in a public place  endangering lives.

Apparently, you deem it acceptable for  people to illegally own and use firearms. Do you really want rational people to accept that this man should  be in possession of a firearm? His act was wanton and willful.

Where are the laws which protect humans from dogs?

And where are the laws which make dog owners responsible for their dogs? And they should also be responsible for the dogs if they throw them out on the street because they are not cute anymore.

Nobody should be cruel to animals. But when animals become a risk to humans something has to be done to stop them.

Rabies in communities locations such as Hua Hin are the result of  people bringing in  infected animals. Hua Hin is  historically rabies free. There is no local reservoir of infection to support the type of rabies infection reported. Rather, what we have are animals abandoned or tossed from puppy mills or who escape animal traffickers.

stop the illegal activities and one of the principal causative factors allowing the spread of the disease are addressed.

Shoot all the stray dogs....to much of them roaming around.

Wonderful illustration of limited intellect and ignorance. How many times do you need to be told that the cause of the    stray dogs is the refusal to  spay and neuter, to undertake responsible  animal  management and to stop the puppy mills. Every day, some idiot tosses animals out a car window and abandons them.

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. They should be giving this guy a medal. 

Intentionally misleading information. One dog died in quarantine. It did not die in the street foaming at the mouth. Why do you lie? All rabies cases are logged and recorded in the public health registry. Following the event  20+ dogs  alleged to have been infected were verified. They were killed and tested and no sign of infection recorded.

The guy was doing a public service and should be rewarded not punished.

How is it a public service to discharge an illegal firearm in a public space?

For lying?  There is no evidence to support his claim. No witnesses have supported his version of events. However, don't let that interfere with the promotion of your agenda.

If he used a "legal tool" like a spade or whatever, fine with me. I've been attacked and bitten by mad stray dogs once, i can tell you it wasn't a nice experience. Next time, it might be your turn.

"...43 bullets..."

 

Because the ammo is sold in a box of 45 or 50, not per bullet.

So if you buy a box of beer you need to carry it everywhere you go, same logic.

I never had a problem in my time, i live here for over a decade. I think it depends on you, what your doing and where you are. I have no such problems in my area.

That's what i thought until i got attacked. Sure, it depends on where you are and you can avoid them, that's what i'm doing now days.

There is nothing morally or ethically wrong with putting a bad dog down. And it is the responsibility of the communities to be culling these dogs anyway. There are far too many soi dogs, they are not being taken care of, thousands are diseased and mangy, they terrorize alot of locals, have no business being in areas where businesses are operating, and should not be allowed to roam around near hotels. Take them out. Do what has to be done. The law here is beyond broken. The judicial system is broken. When rapists get a year in jail, and guys who beats the crap out of their wives get no punishment, yet a guy who is saving people from being terrorized gets two years in jail, judges nationwide need to hang their heads in shame.

While he has been charged with firearms offences, the specific mention of a penalty of two years in prison that you are replying to, is in regard to the animal cruelty charges.

 

From the original article:

 

Quote

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

 

There is no mention of the penalties for firearms offences.

 

However I should perhaps mention that the two years is a potential maximum sentence and not necessarily what he would receive even if found guilty.

That's what I thought - you're talking about something that happened way back in 2017. I'd hardly call that an incident that "wasn't too long ago." I was expecting something from the last couple of weeks (or at the most, months).

Just give us your address Mr. doglover, so the next time (which is daily in Thailand!) we can arrange the dogs to be send to you.

 

There are too much stories of kids and people getting bitten or mauled by dogs in Thailand. If you don't see this you really need to take your head out of the sand. 

 

And don't ask for a link. Just Google it if you don't believe it!

Total BS that you say this is the caused by people bringing in infected animals, do think they have a magic fence that keeps them 'historically rabies free'. lol Don't know what your smoking but maybe you should apply for the 'amnesty', maybe they can get you some help.
