Dozens of rabbits dumped on Songkhla beach

More than 30 rabbits were rescued after they were dumped on Samira beach in Songkhla’s Muang district on Tuesday.

 

A university student spotted two men and a woman throwing cardboard boxes into the pine forest near the beach before driving away on Tuesday afternoon. Checking the scene, she found dozens of rabbits had been abandoned.

 

Wachirapranee Wisartpong, 22, said she called her sister to help catch the animals. She then broadcast their rescue efforts live on Facebook, drawing the attention of a local rescue unit and other people who joined the search.

 

One of the rabbits was found dead in the pine forest while two more died after capture, the student said.

 

She said she and her friends were visiting the beach when she saw an SUV arrive carrying two men and a woman who threw the boxes into the forest and sped off. She could not remember the licence plate.

 

All the rescued rabbits have been adopted by people who saw the live broadcast, she added.

Hope they find the prats that dumped the rabbits and punish them to the max. Another example of animal cruelty.

If they hadn't caught them Songkhla would soon have a considerable rabbit population

to match Thailand's cat and pigeon populations.

Rabbit is on the menu is places around me (in San Sai Chiang Mai).  

 

I sometimes eat laab Gratai… rabbit Laab.    Also duck and wild boar.  Mind you this is at very basic country style Thai places not at a posh restaurant in the city.

 

What puzzles me is why Thai people don't keep and eat more goats.  The climate here seems good for goats, and they would love eating all the spiky scrub and bushes / weeds that Thai people seem to love to strim and burn every few weeks.

Because they prefer Noo Bing instead.
