Here we go again, soi dogs need to be exterminated like the dangerous vermin they are, not fed bags of old rice by idiots and left for the numbers to explode into the millions. Just wait until the 'pi

there is no compassion aiding the spread of these filthy animals. thai people need to be educated and the entire soi dog population needs to be put down. 

Sadly, there is neither the money, but more importantly the will to deal with the problem. Thais because of the Buddhist attitude won't put them down, leaving mass sterilisation as the only real long

I don't know if this particular problem we are now having is happening elsewhere, but since the Government announced tax on vacant land plots a lot of areas in Hua Hin are being cleared and planted. Many of these areas were overgrown and provided the dogs with "safe havens", and territories. Now they are all wandering the roads in packs. Yet we still have the moronic people ( Foreigners, as much as Locals ), leaving large bowls of rice and other foods on the road for them, so they will obviously stay where the food is.

Not a waste of time at all. If they simply assume the dogs have rabies the 6 children and 3 adults bitten by the dogs will have to go through a course very painful injections,,,,,,,possibly needlessly 

Regardless if the dog is suspected of having rabies or not, it is highly advised that anyone bitten by a soi (any) dog starts the anti-rabies course within 24 hours of being bitten. You really don't want to take the chance and end up dying from rabies, certainly not a pleasant way to go.

Noticing many more strays sleeping on the streets these days, abandoned by owners no doubt facing financial troubles during the pandemic. The dogs need taking off the streets now.

And the previous owners who dumped them need taking out of circulation too! Puppies are cute but when they grow they all too often get dumped, sometimes just by being shut out of the property in which they have been raised. Then Thais don't want dogs to be sterilised so their numbers in the streets just grow. If Thai people acted responsibly and compassionately to animals, particularly dogs and cats, these sorts of problems wouldn't arise.

What's the alternative for the dogs! Don't feed them and watch them die of starvation? Blame them for becoming aggressive as they fight for their very existence because no one is giving them food? This is not a humane solution.

The dogs then escaped over a wall back out of Wat Nong Kho school in Sri Racha and attacked three villagers.

Time for a few grams of lead poisoning.

As long as the religion come first & foremost there will never be a cull... Sad

I just cannot agree with you on this.

 

Thais do what they are told and what they are used to. Culling essentially means the dogs are taken away. Culling is not chopping them up at x-roads in the villages, for all to see.

 

If they have no collar on; simply take them away, and the Thais will say nothing. 

 

Bring back the dog wagons.

You are correct, it is not a humane solution. Feeding them so they breed more, yet do nothing else. I am not blaming the dogs for the situation, I am blaming the moronic people that feed them without thought of the consequences. It is basically a failure of local Government to grow a set of B***s and deal with it.

Yes I have seen the kids in my neighborhood provoking the dogs. And the adults are no better. Dogs do not attack for no reason. This is a human problem. Don't blame the dogs.

Here we go again! = Exterminating Soi Dogs or culls DO NOT WORK, in fact they tend to spread diseases like rabies.
