Victim Of Vicious Phuket Pit Bull Attack In Fight To Save Leg

Victim of vicious Phuket pit bull attack in fight to save leg
Phuket Gazette

PHUKET: -- The Phuket resident savaged by a neighbor’s pit bull terriers in February – after he ran out of his house to help a woman who was being attacked by the dogs – is still in hospital fighting to save his right leg, which sustained a deep wound in the attack.

Tiensak Aikpaiboon, 33, underwent another operation on his leg Wednesday morning, Tiensak’s mother, Benjarat, told the Phuket Gazette.

“He had an operation Wednesday, but went into shock and was taken into the intensive care unit [iCU]. He was released from the ICU Wednesday evening,” she said.

“The doctor operated on his right leg, which has a deep hole that is close to the bone. We are doing our best to keep his leg,” Mrs Benjarat said.

Mr Tiensak’s condition stabilized overnight.

“He is okay now, resting in the hospital. However, he still needs at least two more operations,” Mrs Benjarat said yesterday.

Mr Tiensak is now receiving treatment at Bangkok Hospital in Bangkok, as per his mother’s request. Medical bills to save her son have spiralled to over one million baht.

“On March 12, he had a skin graft to repair his leg wounds at Phuket International Hospital, but he went into shock the next day. He was in the ICU for four days,” Mrs Benjarat explained.

“Then we moved him to Bangkok on March 20,” she added.

“So far, I have paid over one million baht for medical treatment, and there will be more bills for future treatments and surgeries, such as the two operations he will need in the next two to three weeks,” Mrs Benjarat said.

Mr Tiensak, speaking briefly to the Gazette by phone, said in a weak voice, “My wounds still hurt.”

Seeking justice is likely to take time as police confirmed they have not taken any action against the owners of the pit bulls that carried out the vicious attack on a public street.

“The dog owners have yet to be charged. We are still investigating the case,” Lt Col Sanich Nookong of the Wichit Police told the Gazette yesterday.

He explained that progress in the case was taking time “because both parties must come in together to settle the problem at the police station.”

“We cannot make any progress in the case until both parties are free to enter negotiations at the station,” Col Sanich said.

Mrs Benjarat’s lawyer said the family will be seeking damages by civil suit against the dogs’ owners, named as Prasert and Jantra Kulweeraaree, 69 and 65 years old.

“We will file for compensation, but it will be after the medical treatment has concluded because Mrs Benjarat is busy with her son at the hospital,” her lawyer said.

Is the dog still alive? If so, why?

We had the thread (now closed) about when this incident happened. Or when it was reported anyway. Not gonna get into that again...

But you are correct. And my guess would be it's still alive.

It is really fantastic that there are soo many people that defend these monsters to dogs... I do not understand some people..... My suggestion is to kill all of these pitbulls and similar dogs and keep the nice ones.....

It is obvious that the Wichit Police are very, very weak men. To not have charged this couple for their heinous dog yet is inexcusable. This dog must be put down, no matter how this is settled. One way or another. Period.

I thought I read an article a few years ago that Pitbulls,Radwiellers and other vicious breed dogs were outlawed in Thailand, just for this reason......???? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah I thought that too.

Problem is enforcing it. Who would enforce this law if there was such a one? The BIB are far too busy. whistling.gif

If these Pitbulls are illegal in Thailand, then they are as illegal as going through a red light....

This incident happened in Febuary and these animals , both he dogs and the owners have not been taken to task.

The police are waiting for both parties to negotiate ?. These dogs should have been put down immediately and the owners should have been charged but instead the police just sit around waiting for their cut. A bloody disgrace. However simply par for the course here in Thailand.

Same place as the bashers.

I suppose its the dogs fault also that he went into shock after the surgeryrolleyes.gif

no wonder police has not taken any action, as the story AGAIN has changed.

Last story was, he walked past the house, now again to he went to help.

Last story, he was about to be released, this story he needs more and more surgery's.

Funny that, also after the dog owner agreed to pay some money with which mother was not happy, she moved her son to even more expansive hospital

Some breeds are just an insane human creation.

The dog is maybe not responsible for the way its breed has been selected to be as aggressive as possible. The problem is not there

These beasts are weapons they owners are not forced to register (unlike firearms) and anyway are not able to keep a reasonable (let alone full) control on.

The very existence of this kind of creatures is a human mistake.

There is no reason for the general public to have to risk being awfully maimed (see other similar news) just because some insecure people need to own such animals to feel better.

I like dogs (and I own some) but I'm in favor of getting rid of these weapons.

Well I can't make a statement about Pitbulls but I can tell you for a fact that Rottweilers are very gentle dogs. I have 6 cousins that have owned Rottweilers for over 30 years and they have been the sweetest dogs you could have.

My belief is that any dog can be vicious it is all a matter of how it is trained by the owner. The big difference is when a large dog bites you there is severe damage and it is difficult to stop it, where as a vicious Chihuahua can be crushed easily.
