At 8pm yesterday (Mar 2), Kusoldharm rescue workers were informed by a couple that they had found a dog which had been stabbed in Baan Borae, Wichit.

Rescue workers attended the scene and found the couple cradling a distraught dog which had been stabbed in its chest and neck.

They administered first aid to the dog before taking it to the Rattanatibeth Referral Animal Hospital on Chao Fa East Rd in Wichit.

The couple who found the dog told rescue workers that the dog belonged to their neighbour who were not at the house at the time.

“We found the dog injured, and after speaking to other residents we all agreed that it needed medical attention and that we would all put together to cover the costs,” one resident said.

One of the rescue workers who attended to the dog added, “All the residents said the same thing; that whoever had done this was cruel and that they could not understand why anyone would want to do this to a dog,” he said.

Was this in a Muslim or Buddhist part of phuket? 
In reply to those who are defending the stabbing allegedly caused by excessive barking. If let's say you find your neighbors obsessively noisy, crying child would you deliver the same treatment? A second scenario you catch your party prone noisy Eastern Europe neighbors .... will you take the law into your hands as well?

in reply to CaptainJack69...yes, stabbing the animal is not the solution, it is cruel and illegal. on the other hand many people in thailand are oblivious to the annoyance caused by loud dogs repetitively barking at all hours causing untold grief to neighbours trying to sleep or even watch tv. its peoples nature to take the law into their own hands. if the owners fail to do their civic duty and shut the dog up, it will recur. this is a message that there is a problem with that dog and if it is ignored ,it may happen again. i would like to have a dog, however i cannot conform with the tessabaan regulation that the dog must be kept within the bounds of the property. i have no fences. Dogs running rampant are a problem in thailand which needs to be addressed firstly by the owners, secondly by the tessabban and thirdly by health and safety regulators. many dogs bark incessantly when the owner is not home, ignorance isnt an excuse. non dog owners have rights too and failure to respect these will encounter problems such as poisoning etc etc. dog owners need to conform and make the required changes and be respectful responsible owners. it appears under current law that dogs have more rights than people.

I was bitten by a stray dog in phuket town years ago. need it stiches and injektions at mission hospital, had to pay the bill. i did get hold of the dog but had no knife, so tried to brake his neck or stragulate him but he was to strong and managed to flee. there was people in shop,s who was watching the wrestling but they was to busy with there nationalsport. Betting on the winner

Maybe the dog bit someone or tried to bite someone. It doesn't justify what happened but most Thais don't lock up their dogs and there are many which try and bite people, kill cats and make a lot of noise which really stresses people out.

Cruel, i would say most Thais are cruel because they don't look after their dogs very well. Lost count of how many dogs i have seen in very poor health with broken legs and severe rashes etc. roaming around looking for food because they are starving to death.

They need a RSPCA in Thailand.

My little Shih Tzu yapped a lot, but paid the price. Someone stole her from the garden and I never saw her again. Neighbours?

I can't speak for this case, but as I read this I am listening to my neighbours' dog barking behind my house. It's like this every day and the people who "look after" it never do anything about the barking. This is normal in Thailand, so I can quite understand how someone might get fed up with it. I can't condone harming the animal of course, I'd rather the people were stabbed than the innocent creature,  but that's just my opinion.
