Channel 3 news reported that a foreign boy was attacked by a stray dog on the beach at Ao Nang while walking with his father. 

 

Before the officials could arrive the father had taken his son to the hospital with a nasty gash to his calf.

 

Food and Beverage manager at the Golden Beach Resort Sompong Thiankaew, 56, said he heard the cries of the boy and went to help.

 

The incident happened in Moo 2.

 

The media reported that the local council have been trying to address the problem of strays on the beach after many similar attacks.

 

But the problem is far from over.

 

In fact it may be worse after workers made redundant due to the pandemic left the area and left their dogs to fend for themselves.

 

Ao Nang is one of the most popular tourist areas in the South of Thailand in Krabi province. It would normally be getting full at this time of the year especially with Scandinavian tourists.

Is this an initiative from A-nut-in, to keep them thar foreigners in check?

Maybe it should become rocket science, then the dogs could be fired into space. Then we could all breathe easily - apart from the dogs.

It is unfortunate that those here, that control things, don't seem to have the aptitude to sort anything out except look smart and earn a few quid, and that goes for most stuff...😬

Stray dogs need to be removed from any public area. 

 

The problem is solvable and with so many people out of work and struggling to make ends meet there is an endless resource of people to help assisting in removing these animals. 

 

This issue could have easily been resolved 20 or 30 years ago. It can easily be resolved this year so its not a problem next year. 

 

The real issue is that those in positions of decision making power simply do not care and thats the issue with so many of these ‘outstanding issues’ Thailand suffers.

If the local government office was made liable for attacks & injuries sustained on a public area things would change overnight.

As with many things, lip service, denial, wais, and forgotten. On the other hand, slander a person or a business and the Wrath of Khan will descend upon your head. Pathetic.

Wonder if the TAT desired premium tourists will be immune to dog bites

BREAKING NEWS:

This just in from TAT,

In addition to the New Covid-19 Insurance a Tourist must have, you will now be required to have a new Policy called the "Special Soi Dog bite and Attack coverage policy".  Half of the money raised will go into the TAT's pockets while the rest will be used to create a panel to study the effects a possible new job description called: "The Dog Catcher".  An additional panel will be set up to look at the efficacy of building dog kennels where the strays can be housed until either adopted by a loving family or euthanized.........................

As per usual Trying  to do something about it .That doesn't

 mean Anything.. 

Doing something about it Means something.

But What are they going to do about it ? 

Round up a few Pests and take them away a couple streets and than let them go to Return?

So taking legal action if someone isn't doing their job or is irresponsible is the 'nanny state '?  Think you don't know the definition of the phrase!

If it were mine, I'd sue the <deleted> off the local government.

TAT are looking at promoting medical tourism . Rabies and skin grafts a specialty 

Ha ha! That's a bit of a catch 22 situation. You want a visa for medical tourism, but you won't meet the requirements until you arrive.

Maybe they will be breeding more attack dogs to keep filling the hospital beds?
