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

Recommended Posts

Like anyone else, I have to deal with loose dogs whenever I ride my bike.  A lot of them belong to a house, gate open, come and go as they please, staking out the area in front of their owner's house as their domain.  I've gotten to know the dogs on my usual route, there are only 1 or 2 that will pursue me consistently.  Stopping my bike snaps them out of their trance.  If I ride by them on my motor bike, no reaction at all. 

 

Haven't been bitten.  Yet.  I realize when I ride the pushbike through new areas, I'm rolling the dice.  Just a matter of time.  Unless I get flattened by a truck/car first.  🤕

What a senseless tragedy. My heart goes out to this family. I hope the government will pay for the numerous reconstructive surgeries he might need. No even counting the numerous hours working with a good therapist to put this trauma behind him.

Ah well, the kid isn't Chinese, so no problem. Feral mutts will still be able to freely roam the streets to main kids. Maybe LOS can be renamed the Land of Glasgow Smiles.

He intimated that he is constrained by what he can do due to Thailand's strict animal cruelty laws.

In that case, why doesn't the government implement Article 44 towards a justifiable cause instead of using it only when they disagree with something.

 

Such a weak excuse about being constrained.

way past time all these strays were destroyed before more people are attacked, there are way too many strays in Thailand including cats. Unfortunately thais get dogs then simply leave them roaming the streets, time for all strays to be picked up and if not claimed destroyed, would also be good to introduce laws making owners responsible for their dogs including big fines if they are found roaming. Big difference between a dog lover and the idiots that dont take care of them or just release them onto the streets

how about a government subsidized neutering and spaying program?

Sounds like shooting is next up for the solution.

I sincerely hope so. When they've finished they can come and shoot the noisy lot where I live, followed by their owners. Hope the poor little'n recovers ok.

I would be happy to kill ALL these dangerous dogs just as long as there are no legal consequences...I'll be the first to step up and offer free execution services

I spent a week in the area a few years ago with several days at or around the beach. Never saw a single dog. But things change from time to time. Best wishes for this unfortunate little tyke.

 

I wonder how TAT will counter this very bad press.

"No Thai dog could have done this! They were dogs that had sneaked across the border from Burma"?

Good thing that kid wasn't Chinese. Those dogs wouldn't stand a chance. T.A.T. would have called in a SWAT team to deal with the problem.

Very sad, Hope the little boy recovers.  In the UK all dogs have to be micro chipped and wear a collar, easy to do and any stray dog is picked up by the dog warden and the owner has to pay a fine.  Easy to do.
