    Three Men Arrested For Beating Stray Dog to Death

    NAKHON RATCHASIMA ó Police have arrested three men who allegedly beat a stray dog to death in Nakhon Ratchasima province during their attempt to kidnap the dog for consumption.

    Pol. Col. Yongyot Polladej, superintendent of Ma Roeng Police Station, said the arrests followed complaints from local residents who saw the suspects attack a stray dog and drag its bloodied body onto a motorcycle five months ago.

    CCTV footage clearly captured the incident and the identities of the four suspects, Pol.Col. Yongyot said. Three of the men were arrested yesterday, and police are looking for the fourth suspect, who is believed to be a soldier serving in Bangkok, Pol.Col. Yongyo said.

    The arrested suspects were identified as Samart Plaekrathok, 22; Teerasak Koworaklang, 22; and Likhit Srirasksa, 22.

    Because the group committed the crime last September, they have been charged with violating Section 381 of the Criminal Codes, which punishes killing animals inhumanely with up to one month in prison and 1,000 baht fine. The law was recently enhanced by the Animal Welfare Act, passed by the junta's interim parliament last November, which raises the penalty to two years in prison and 40,000 baht fine.

    "The suspects committed the crime under the older law," Pol.Col. Yongyot explained.

    According to Pol.Col. Yongyot, Samart confessed that he and three other friends went out drinking on the night of 24 September, 2014. He reportedly told police that they drunkenly came across the dog, and decided to kidnap it "for cooking."

    Samart confessed that he and his friends beat the dog with a large piece of wood until it died, then carried the dead body on motorcycle to be cooked.

    Dog meat is consumed in some parts of northeastern Thailand.

    They killed a dog that would either have caused a road accident, bitten someone, spread diseases etc etc. Sounds like they did a service. Shame they didn't do a few thousand others that roam the streets of Thailand.

    Beating the dog with a piece of wood until it died is cruel and an indicator of a heartless individual.

    ^ There's a big difference between being mercifully culled (which would be a good idea for many stray dogs here) and beaten to death with sticks.
    There are also numerous psychological studies showing a link between violent behavior towards animals and violence towards other humans. Sadly these monkeys will not get the prison sentences they deserve.

    Me too. I recently took up cycling to keep fit and due to dogs I've come a cropper a few times. They're a nuicance beyong belief. In the course of my regular 40km cycle route I get attacked at least 8 times by one or more dogs. The owners don't give two shits and actually think it funny as I swerve to avoid them. Whoever has compassion for Thai dogs has never ridden a bicycle here.

    I have two so called street mutts I took in as 5-6 week old puppies 7 years ago. They're both great dogs. One is lovable but dumb, but the other one seems to read my mind, and is a brilliant dog.

    There's few bad dogs, but many bad dog owners. Both mine are sterilized and neither leave the yard except with me on a leash or in my car.

    Anyone who believes dogs cannot think and experience many of the same emotions we do has never had a good dog.

    ^ In general I know there to be a difference in the way farangs raise their dogs compared to a Thai. I thought it just me, but why do Thais not stop/call back their dogs when they attack people?

    dog owners are absolutely NO HELP to you whatsoever. The Thais’ will NOT call a dog away that is barking at you or threatening to bite. They just will not. I don’t know what it is – I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’ve yet to see it happen unless there was some violence about to be inflicted upon the dog by a tree limb, metal bar or other instrument.
    Dogs in Thailand, a Different Breed When I've gone to fire my catapult at a snarling dog the owner will stand between me and the fooking dog. Go figure.

    I'm with Bob, I love dogs.

    Some of you guys are heartless. If I saw someone hitting a dog like that, I'll soon be bashing on them.

    Keep it real... (just wanted to keep that black brother vibe going...) peace xx

    I don't know, likely because Thais are not held responsible when their dogs bite someone like we would be in the West.

    One of the things I admire the most about our similar Western cultures is our intolerance for unnecessary cruelty to animals. The lack of compassion by many Thais saddens me.

    Do the cycle route I take and see if you come back with the same opinion.

    Amazing Thailand indeed. Kill an animal for food earns an immediate arrest but kill a copper with a Ferrari whilst drunk and high on cocaine and you get to live in Singapore in luxury.

    Or, slice a migrant in half in your dad's Porsche Cayman.......


    Or run over a bus queue of people in your Mercedes .....

    Or shoot a guy in the head on a crowded dance floor with a zillion witnesses....

    .....and nothing happens.

    Go figure.

    I'm sure there are a lot of cattle, pigs, chickens and sheep that would like to change places with you throughout the Americas and Europe.

    I guess it all depends on what your definition is of unnecessary cruelty.

    Even with that, the pigs and cattle are stunned with a head bolt first to reduce the pain. Sadly we make an exception for halal foods but that typical like the stupidity of anything connected to most religion.

    They're also fed and watered (usually) up to the time of slaughter.
