Finnish boy, 5, savaged on Ao Nang beach by pack of wild dogs - rabies feared

Recommended Posts

Like so many things here, Thailand's policy on euthanasia is pathetically out of date. Stray dogs should be rounded up and put down if not claimed. People who find their pets have become vicious and uncontrollable should have the option of having a vet humanely euthanize them, rather than just turning them loose. The same goes for old, sick pets that have no quality of life. The Buddhist belief of letting them suffer has no place in today's world.

If you can weather the storm on social media, this too shall pass. 

As did the ones before, and all the ones still to come. 

 

Similar dynamic in my 1st world country with mass shootings.  Government officials hide under their desks waiting for the peasant uprising on Facebook to blow over.

The chief of the local administration has said he has tried everything.

He hasn't tried killing them yet. That's the only effective solution

Thailand animal cruelty laws.. Haha what a joke!  Most Thais don't have a clue how to look animals, plenty of animals are kept locked in cages etc. 

we have packs of stray dogs everywhere near where we live.  Some idiots keep feeding them and making the situation worse.

Stray Dogs should be neuted /spaded. The government is just too lazy to do anything about it. Animal cruelty is a lame excuse. 

I have a 5 year old daughter and we always have to be wary of dogs here. 

My heart goes out to this poor little boy.

Stray dogs are a disgrace in this country.

I add my voice to the best wishes for the boy and for some exemplary action about those dogs - I can only dream about an action on dogs at all other beaches with the same problem.

 

But the real roots of the issue are higher up, and lie with the people.

Sounds like the old days in Cha Am and Hua Hin. Dangerous as heck if even if it was adult an walking by themselves. Personal experience on that one. Nothing good comes from these mutts. Time to kill them.

Not the old days,  it still a big problem here.

I love dogs but the feral dogs here can be scary, they are a danger in many ways. I would hope homes could be found for non-aggressive ones, but those that display any aggression need to be put down.

I live in Bangkok and have been menaced fairly often by dogs. It's usually one, they notice you, then there is a pack of them. I love dogs but I have no sympathy for the feral dogs here. I'll cheer if they are all put down...

It can only be hoped that this boy recovers well. Bog bites are worse than meets the eye when inflicted on muscle tissue especially because the teeth  do not simply pierce the skin but tear up tissue underneath as the dog shakes its head as it bites. I know because I have had such an injury and they are long in healing.

This  case alone should be initiative enough to wave  Article 44 at and take lasting effective measures to  cull strays. When dogs pack they are a genuine menace even to other dogs! With or  without the presence of rabies.

The futile and extremely expensive rabies vaccination programs that are randomly applied do not compensate for attacks like this 

Licensed and registered or permanent removal. The new industry of salvaging dogs is no solution to the real numbers of perpetually breeding dogs.

No more bleating hearts & yes I owned & bred dogs for years.

Time for a cull now before this happens again & again & again  & IT WILL
