Dogs in Thailand: Mum turns to the media after owner won't pay medical bills for savaged daughter

A mother in southern Thailand turned to the media after a neighbor's dog savaged her daughter. 

 

The seven year old was left needing ten stitches after the dog got her head in its mouth.

 

She was on her way to innocently buy sweets with a couple of pals tagging along behind when the vicious attack started.

 

Luckily the little girl's father was nearby or it could have been much worse. 

 

Mother Phenpha Phothong, who lives in Thap Phrik sub-district went to the Muang Krabi police who called in the dog's owner and fined them 1,000 baht for letting their dog run loose. 

 

The owner proved to be yet another lying and irresponsible dog owner. 

 

He promised to pay 10,000 baht for medical bills. But when it came time to pay up the owner refused.

 

The dog - that previously bit a friend of the little girl - is still wandering around the neighborhood. 

 

Phenpha said she is a poor woman and decided to turn to Facebook and the media after the owner let her down following the attack last Friday evening.

I do find it strange that the child did not get free medical. I thought everyone in Thailand could get free medical. 

 

But the dog owner should be punished more then a 1000 bt fine. Also he should be force to pay the 10.000

Kids get free treatment at any government hospital (no need for the kids to be registered at that hospital).

Might have been cosmetic, which isn't free.

Savage child attacking dogs find it hard to bite with many holes in them 🤔

And yet if the dog kills the girl the dogs owner most likely will get fined further and wont do any jail time but the person killing the dog will.

i would poison the dog and be done with it.

Unfortunately  poisoning/killing the dog carries much higher penalties  than the dog biting/killing a child does :crazy:
