scary walking through my village after dark

Recommended Posts

My dogs are psuedo-soi dogs....they know where they live and spend most of their time at the house, but they are "free-range".

If they did not bark at people they do not know, I would not keep them around long.

That is their only job.

A Buford Pusser stick can help with that.

I have a nice piece of bamboo perhaps 30" long or so...that goes with me on a walk, on the bicycle, or on the motorbike.

Most soi dogs are pretty smart (the stupid ones do not live long, Darwin's law at work) and understand a stick.

There are guys who get their jollies from owning a known dangerous dog. They probably have tiny dks. "Civilized" countries have leash laws where a dog either has to be fenced in or on a leash. They aren't allowed to run free.

Now combine that owner that just has to own a very intimidating dog with the same owner who lets it roam free and you're asking for trouble. Where I come from that dog won't last long. And yes, there are dogs that have viciously attacked people and killed children and maimed adults for life.

It ain't gonna happen to me.

Cheers.

Agreed,

A wild dog on my land, I'll kill it if I can and dispose of the body.

No need for it to attack me, it shouldn't be there, I don't want it's shit.

You want to keep a pet, you keep in on your land.

No. You'll probably shoot it.

Shoot first, ask questions later

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.

A friend of mine in NM did the same thing. He had small kids at the time and had repeatedly told the neighbor to keep his dog off his property. The dog kept straying into his yard and he shot it dead. When the police showed up, they kind of just says, "Yep, it is dead, let the neighbor pick it of if he still wants it" and they drove off.

Village dogs are not strays, they are taken care of because they help with security.

In the villages people are usually in bed by 10pm so after dark there are very few people around. Those that do pass through are almost always in a pick up truck or on a bike and they pass by quickly. By walking slowly into the dog's territory you are a potential threat. This is the dog's chance to put you in your place, ie. away from its territory, and almost anyone except those who misunderstand where they are (in a foreign land) understands this.

Furthermore, after dark is the time when dogs own the village. It's not just about protecting territory from suspicious strangers: usually some time between 11pm and midnight the animals of the village, the dogs, buffalo and cockerels will have a mad half hour. This is their time to broadcast across the neighbourhood and be answered by their peers because sound can travel more clearly once the people are asleep. Thus there is all manner of howling, mooing and crowing but it usually lasts no more than thirty minutes. Once you understand village life you will know that mad half hour is like a curfew call to all drunken foreigners who have ventured out of their depth.

I meant the sound of the animals can be broadcast better when people are quieter.

Yes, when you hear something sound waves lose a bit of energy. When people are asleep they don't hear anything and the sound waves travel further. Also dark air transmit sound better and most people sleep at night.
