A man has been held by police for questioning after he was accused of killing horses and selling their meat in Thailand’s eastern province of Chonburi.

 

Chonburi police arrested of Mr. Nirun Kamlon, 33, at his house in Tambon Takhien of Banglamung district, on Saturday on the orders of the provincial governor. The Watchdog Thailand Foundation had lodged a complaint with the governor that a Thai man has been killing horses and selling their meat on Facebook and in fresh markets in the district for a long time.

 

Police found the skull of a horse and dried blood stains in Nirun’s house. A horse and one piece of, what is believed to be, the shin bone of a horse were found in the backyard of his house.

In many other nations, however, eating horse meat is no big deal - and in some cultures, it's even considered a delicacy

well that is not the problem is it ?

 

If you buy a Steak pie of a street vendor you expect it to be beef

 

Has anyone ever seen "horse" on a menu in Pattaya - I haven't but have probably eaten it along with dog

Aroy, mak, mak

Reminds me of my days in France in the 70s.

My old mum went berserk, when she found out the next day,  it was Horse meat at the BBQ.

Australians in the outback have eaten horse meat. Wouldn't be surprised if alot of meat pies in OZ have horse meat.

Horse and dog are basically the same word in Thai which probably explains why you can't kill & eat them.

What worries me is getting rat meat in your noodle broth or on a grilled satay stick ,that's why I don't eat vendor food in Chinatown. OMG.

Backpackers do.  555

Living in Holland in the seventies, and used to eat a lot of Frickandalen, Krocken,  and burgers. Very tasty, and, I believe the regulations then were that they could only contain a certain percentage of Horsemeat....

The suspect told police he had been killing disabled horses but gave up after breaking his leg in a motor bike accident 6 months ago. Are we supposed to believe he suddenly felt sympathy for the horses after becoming temporarily disabled himself?

 

He also said the live horse in his backyard was not for killing but was available for sale to anyone who wanted buy it and set it free. First time I have heard of Thais making merit by releasing horses by settling them free like giant cat fish or linnets.  How are horses supposed to be able find food and get themselves shod after being freed on the streets of Pattaya?

 

The suspect is clearly a liar and fully deserves the 500 baht fine plus public apology and wais to the murdered horses during re-enactment in front of important policemen with scrambled egg on their shoulders.
