scary walking through my village after dark

Recommended Posts

I haven't been out at night before walking that is around my village. The missus reckons to watch out for crazy dogs, I took this advise to lightly. they seem ok during the day a bit of barking when you walk past there home. I went for a beer at a mates home and before i realized it was getting dark so i took off for home to get some grub. I am a bit tippsy and full of dutch courage. Anyway one dog starts yelping at me so i growl back big mistake he starts bolting for me, i did the hundred under ten i reckon. He backed off thank god. I can't believe the locals let them do it. I know now just to walk past and say nothing and they just follow barking at me until i am out of there area. In my home you don't see this behavior from dogs, but this is thailand, another learning curve.

They are everywhere...the soi dogs are ok because they are socialized and around people all day....but the dogs on someone's property are dangerous....here in BKK I already know what neighborhoods I cannot walk thru because of this...Thais (and I am not being racist here) are about the most irresponsible animal owners I have ever seen on the planet and I have been to a lot of places.

No, a good dog, and I mean a dog that inherited a good temperament won't attack a human. It sees the human as its leader and it is a pack animal by nature.

In the West dogs are often bred for temperament and bad ones are culled by at least sterilizing. Most breeders are responsible. In Thailand you get what you get and the worst become the dominate pack leaders.

I killed a rottweiler a few years back that I was certain was readying a viscous attack. I was running my Bobcat excavator at the time and I simply shot him, dug his grave, pushed him in with the bucket and covered him up. Although what I did was legal I didn't want neighbors who owned him upset with me.

I don't know what to tell you, as in a civilized country such dogs are impounded and if not claimed and after paying a stiff fine by the owner, they are put down.

Pick up a stick or rock.

They know what happens next.

I can’t believe the locals let you harass their dogs like that. Dogs are supposed to bark at strange drunk guys walking around after dark. It is part of their job description.smile.png

You shot your neighbours dog and buried it in your garden because you thought it was planning to attack you?

I'm glad you're not my neighbour.

I used to pull that trick, it would work on one or two dogs.

There used to be small road I'd walk, I once made the mistake of walking at dusk. As the Op mentioned the dogs became somehow more brave and empowered at this time.

After picking up the stone the dog hesitated but didn't scarper... it was soon joined by another dog, then another... soon there were 5 or 6 dogs.. while I was trying to remain firm and calmly walk on slowly... (I was crapping myself)... these dogs were growling, seething...

Fortunately someone came past on a motorcycle, saw my predicament and pulled up. I didn't need a second invitation to hop on the back.

IMO, I was very close to being attacked, mulled and chewed apart by a load of street dogs which had packed together.

It was an extremely frightening experience.

Walk round Beung Kaen Nakhorn early morning, lots of dogs there, all strays, not one will touch you.

The minute you leave the lake area, the dogs outside will go for you !

Reading this has sort of made me hope a pack of rabid soi dogs come and tear you limb from limb 'tough guy', and then ram your 'Bobcat' where the sun don't shine because there is probably room enough for it there.....

More reasons why imbecile 'tough guy' Yanks shouldn't have guns or 'Bobcats.....

OP, buy a nice walking stick, or carve yourself one, and not a hound will you see as you pace through the village of a night......

It's the Thai home security system.
It works!

Pepper spray would work against them, but the neighbors probably wouldn't like their dogs yelping like that and may come after you themselves.

You'd only have to hit them once with it in the face.

Indeed.

It is strictly forbidden to walk through the village in the dark, didn't you know? cheesy.gif

So many dogs here but no attacks on humans, just barking and maybe approaching you.

Raise your arm, turn towards them and shout at them and off they go.

Its indeed always worth to pickup some stick from the road side to show them.

Problems dogs will be "taken care" by the villagers.

More than one killed/vanished over the years.
