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

Recommended Posts

Every stray should be shot, captured and euthanized. Put Big Joke's team on this. This is really out of hand. Stray and rabid dogs scour the sois and no one wants to bother with them. This has got to stop.

I critisized the guard for shooting a puppy that had done nothing. This however is a totally different situation where the dogs are proven to be a danger. Two totally different situations. 

 

I would also not condone it if people without care and a license to carry a gun would start shooting in public. I am not an American so I don't like guns and see the dangers with idiots handeling guns.

 

A culling of problem dogs by professionals is a good thing, the shooting of a puppy that was not a problem dog (excuse of the guy shooting the dog) by a guy with no license and an illegal gun in a public place is a problem.

I agree no guns. A Hakapik is a safer solution, oh and yes I am being serious. 

Hope the young lad recovers soon.

Sadly, this backward thinking country only responds to image damaging articles, photos or international coverage. The packs of stray dogs are out of control in many areas and the danger to the public is of no concern it seems.

Expect more attacks on people and more incidents of animal cruelty. When this affects Thailand's tourism (through adverse reports on the book of face) action will take place, not until. My biggest fear is a major rabies outbreak, with the number of strays it could be hard to contain with the efforts that have been shown so far.

Feckless government. They take pride in rounding hapless overstayers always pictured with a large group of police and military and they can't figure out how to use those same resources to stop feral dog attacks? When you have this many attacks, that means the population of feral dogs is long out of control. This government, like many others these days has turned the world on its head. I fear that the government is just too corrupt and without integrity to do anything anymore other than scoring cheap points with the public by demonizing, harassing the same foreigners who brought hard currency to Thailand and help build it. My poor Thailand, how I loved you. The Thailand I loved has succumbed to all that is corrupt and anti-democratic. So aside from just being dog eat dog, its now dog eat human as the big dogs collect big salaries by doing absolutely nothing of significance...  😢

Cant wait for all the keyboard warriors who criticized the security guard for shooting the biting dog the other day to justify this one...

 

Poor kid. Hope he recovers well

 

The chief of the local administration has said he has tried everything. Now the dogs are set to be cleared off the beach entirely. 

 

Obviously not as this has happened, I've been coming to ao nang for nearly 15 years & theres always been packs of stray dogs roaming around & not just the beach, a few years ago they came round where I live in the early hours & attacked my neighbours cat & its kittens & broke one of there backs.....

Pepper spray does the trick 

Yes, but unfortunately pepper spray is ILLEGAL in Thailand as it is considered as a weapon -  but like most illegal things in Thailand it is readily available. The question is whether the police would take note of you using pepper spray to protect yourself - I will assume it is depending of the situation. The pepper spray is banned so it may help you against a dog attack, but you will be at risk to face a fine and confiscation of the spray - but a fine may be a better choice than the risk for rabies ... :thumbsup:

"It was a long standing problem". Yet nothing successful has been done to contain the situation.

Apparently cruelty to animals is more important than human lives.As if the previous issues like tourists being bashed, ripped are not enough. This situation of strays can be controlled IF THERE IS A WILL. cull all the strays and protect Humans.

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.

is there the Will to do? To me it is lacking.
