Rottweiler attack: Civil case settled for 140,000 baht. Criminal case pending

Recommended Posts

15000 baht bartered down to 140000 baht. That`s the value of a human life that can be negotiable.  The victim was probably torn to bits, I can`t imagine the horror he must have suffered. The dog owner got a bargain.

 

Dogs are not mean`t to be kept in cages and it`s no wonder they go mad. Why are these people not banned from keeping dogs for life?

Not to be facetious but it always amazes me how couples with so different opinions can carry on a relationship. Maybe this is where the give and take comes in. Your wife states "cannot kill dog in Thailand" Is this one of those off the cuff comments? In the end the dog suffers by being chained up which might be worse than being put down. I always seem to glean one more particle daily of Amazing Thailand. 

 

The mother-in-law's dog was hit by a hit and run driver in a pick-up truck and crippled, so the poor thing had to drag its hind legs around. When I suggested euthanasia would be the kindest approach and perfectly normal where I come from, I was almost put into Coventry for suggesting such a horrible sacreligious thing.  The dog spent another 6 months chained up to prevent it from getting out into the road and run over again by another drunk. Then it just faded away and mercifully died aged only about 18 months. I could hardly bring myself to go to her house and see the poor animal chained up and shuffling about.  

 

It was not the first dog of hers hit by a villager in a pick-up truck.  After 6pm most of the men seem to be absolutely plastered.  The first dog was mercifully killed outright by the truck.

I have four Alsatians lovely dogs, however one never knows how they might react if provoked, and people broke in at night

 

Does anyone know if a general third party insurance can be bought in Thailand to cover damages the dogs might cause, it might be a good thing to have

The deceased sounds like he was poor and from peasant stock. (setting snares for field rats)

 

The owner of the dogs owns a scrap business, is probably ethnic Chinese and clearly has a few bob. (where there's muck, there's brass)

 

If the status of the two were reversed, I can assure you the outcome and police action or inaction would be very different.

 

Provided he now makes significant payment to the police, he will go nowhere near a prison cell now. The cops are singing his praises, he is posing confidently for the press and the deceased's family have been quickly paid off.

 

To understand Thailand better, understand that all are NOT equal before the law.

what law??

So she learnt nothing  (like dogs  shouldnt run free)just  like the village idiots by me, never  learn never  will, dogs everywhere even got accused of running one over once, said the car that hit it was black, then white, then not a car blah blah blah

Round here theyve  taken to bringing their cows  home now at 7pm onwards in total blackness as I live out of the town, sheer  lunacy.

If they attacked someone who broke into your house you would not need insurance as under section 433 if the victim of the dog attack is shown to have wrongfully provoked the dog the person responsible for the dog has the right of recourse.

Look at the picture.

In NE Thailand, ethnic Chinese make up less than 10% of population. However I would wager the majority of scrap metal yard owners are ethnic Chinese. It is a cultural practice to own one's own business and scrap yard owner is a typical business. So I stand by my statement.

 

Racist! LOL. You do know you're in Thailand, don't you? :clap2:The whole place discriminates by race pervasively.

With respect I think you are missing the "Thai point" that "you cannot kill a dog in Thailand". This is not out of concern for the dog's welfare but for the bad luck that they perceive would befall to the owner. Thus they can keep the dog suffering on a short chain until it dies naturally.

Yes, everything comes back to boon and baap.

I was bit by an at large dog who was then chained up short. One night I went there and finished the job that should have been done the first time.

 

Don't let them catch you.

 

Jail and 100,000 Baht for feeding fish in Thailand.
