Thai media reported that a four year old boy was attacked on Klong Haeng beach, Ao Nang, by a pack of stray dogs. 

 

Little Attachai was with his mum and siblings enjoying a morning out on the sands.

 

Two dogs - park of a pack of four - went for him. As he tried to run off they seriously injured his legs.

They even attempted to drag him off before help arrived in the shape of a hotel gardener who assisted the mother.

The boy was taken to hospital. 

 

Rescue staff said it was the first attack in the area this year after a foreign boy was attacked last year.

 

Victims of dog attacks are usually children, they said.

 

Calls for the local authority to act were also made.

Time to cull this nightmare it's out of hand everywhere 🤔

Agree entirely, catch every last one of the damn filthy pests, then a bullet in the head.

Hope the mother and gardener did not yell at the dogs, or made kicking moves, because then they could end up in jail for animal cruelty.

absolutely agree. They need culling to zero. That poor boy is lucky he wasn't killed if dragged away ...

Time to Call Soi Dog Foundation! I am quite sure the poor doggies have been completely traumatised by this terrible incident and perhaps need some councelling, extra food and quality dog care time... It's a crazy world we live in...

you're totally over. You and some others are beyond sarcasm. Yes, those strays should be taken away. And those who attacked people should be culled immidiately. The owner (or past owner) has to be found and made to pay and be punished. And after there are no more strays left - every new stray should be arrested and the owner found and let him pay for the food and have a heavy punishment

Do any of you guys live in thailand? Soi dogs are part of the culture especially in beach areas drawing local tourists..

 

why are dogs drawn to such areas? I wonder if it hadn’t anything to do with poor food management of beach goers leaving food, bones, food wrappings and general garbage behind after a day at the beach....if they kept their beaches free from garbage and litter with proper containerized spring action bins vs open piles of garbage, it would have far less scavengers to those areas...

 

dogs will be around far longer than humans in these types of areas if push comes to shove...

 

the culture does not condemn feeding soi dogs...it will get rid of foreign tourists b/f getting rid of soi dogs...oh wait

Fight fire with fire, we have a very well behaved group of dogs in our soi, they know us all and react violently and protectively if any strange dogs appear. They also seem to get on well with the local feral cat population.

Times are hard, people need money.

For one month, introduce a bounty of 400b per dog corpse delivered to municipal dumps all over Thailand. Human ingenuity, and people working together, will solve this problem.

Those who wish to give dogs a home before the month commences should be free to do so, but must commit not to abandon them once the novelty wears off.

If that was my kid, these dogs would die... THAT is a certainty!!! I will not torture them, just a swift and immediate death. Where is the animal cruelty in that?
BTW, no witnesses please! (otherwise I would have to kill them too 🤣)

If ever I saw a problem that could be solved with crowdfunding, this is it. I would gladly contribute money to this scheme. It would be something worthwhile to do while waiting for a chance to return to Thailand. A significantly improved Thailand at that.

Great idea - but in reality, hungry Thais will be climbing over their neighbours fences to kill their dog to get the bounty on it

And yet again in the hot spot area of Ao Nang. What is it, sweep it under the carpet and hope it doesn't happen again? Just last night I had a dog run at my motorcycle. Unfortunately it jumped backwards from my kick. And this same dog did the same thing in daylight last week. I would not hesitate to smash one of their little doggie heads in.

Do you know the meaning of the word SARCASTIC, which I hope Freigeist was being.

Oh, excellent...and many Thais will look at their own dogs and wonder why they let 400 easy baht walk around, bark and <deleted> everywhere

Good idea, with one small change: bring the dogs in alive. That way they can be euthanised in a nice way (painless and quick), and not by locals trying to drown them or hitting them with a shovel. Just let them lure the dogs with some food.

 

After that one month the local government can employ dog catchers to keep the soi dog population close to zero. If you see a dog wandering around, you call them and they come pick it up. Next also hire some "animal police" who can be called for people not taking decent care of their dog or for letting the dogs out of the front gate alone. 

 

(and i like your idea that there is only a bounty for 1 month: make it much longer and people will start breeding dogs just to turn them in for 400 baht a pop).

Lets hope they do something more definite than they did last year... any other country the local council would have a law suit in the post with a considerable compensation package attached, here such attacks are ignored.

We often differ on views which is fine, different opinions are a democratic way to find the right path, what is needed is for all strays to be terminated.

For once we are in full agreement.
