A Chon Buri man allegedly shot and killed his neighbours because their dog was barking. 49 year old Jirat Wuttimananon turned himself in to police and allegedly admitted to fatally shooting the married couple after an argument about the barking dog. He faces murder charges.

“I have been annoyed with the dog for a long time and made many complaints. They did not listen to me… This time the dog owner told me that if I wanted to fight with the dog and make it be quiet it was up to me… I then fired more than 10 gunshots and ended the argument on my terms.”

Police found the husband, 39 year old Yothin, dead with multiple bullet wounds. The wife, Boonyanee, was shot in her eye and was pronounced dead while she was being transferred to a local hospital.

Boonyanee’s sister, 48 year old Wassana, lives with the couple and told police that Jirat came by the house because the dog was barking.

“Our dog was barking after someone parked their car nearby out home.”

She says Jirat came over angrily and asked Yothin to kick the dog to make it stop barking. Yothin refused and the neighbours started arguing, then Jirat fired several gunshots, she says.

    I know how he felt.
    Some owners of barking dogs either do not hear it, or are too idle to stop the dog.
    This man should have just shot the dog.

    I can totally relate to that, noise pollution can drive someone crazy, but I recommend buying big speakers and put loud music

    Not uncommon. Usually it’s the barking dog that get’s the bullet or if not that, poisoned meat.

        People should control their dogs and not allow them to be an annoyance to others.

    It’s the culture here. I’ve moved because of it. People here don’t care about others and that’s why it is what it is, unfortunately.

      Not just here,UK can be particularly bad for this also.
      For sure moving is the best option.
      Unjust but the way it is.

    Thais are totally selfish in regards to noise. If they want to start hammering at 6’oclock in the morning, they will.
    I was in a hospital ward once full of dying patients. I was there because a pal had gone into a coma, and he eventually died.
    Outside the window of the ward was some Thai, screeching away with and an angle grinder!
    Their attitude is to hell with everyone I will do what I want.
    This is why you see Thais laying around during the day n. It is because someone has kept them up all night with building or some other noise making reason.

    This is really sorry story.
    It might be possible treat the dog as family. If it is, they have to take care of their family.

    Is this really matter with life and death… Around 50 years, both life are destroyed. 🥺

    Good man for standing up to the non sense in Thailand that agitates many peole-The brain dead Thais simply refuse to control their dogs and authorities do nothing to control the strays also-true he should have shot the dog but he did second best,they deserved it-there is a limit to patience-some foolish Thais will sit in a stalled roadway for hours because some fool is double parked-that is non sense,not worthy of merit-Thais in general thinbk Foreigners are crazy because they get mad-Foreigners think Thais are crazy because they don’t get mad-everythings a joke to Thais it seems but this time the joke turned serious for a change.Cheers.

    Thought the problem with strays was slowly be resolved.
    Little bird told madam plastic that they were all being rounded up and exported to Cambodia.
    Apparently dogs are popular there.

A 68 year old monk has been found hanged at a temple in the eastern province of Chon Buri, in an apparent suicide. The Pattaya News reports that police and rescue workers were called to a temple in the sub-district of Baan Suan at around 7.30am yesterday. The body of the dead man was found hanging near the monk’s housing quarters.

It’s understood there were no signs of a struggle and, in a letter allegedly written by the monk, he said he wanted to die. Other monks and nuns at the temple say they don’t know why he might have killed himself, adding that he had no problems or health concerns that they were aware of.

His death comes just days after a monk in the north-east of the country died after jumping in front of a speeding train.

If you or anyone you know is in emotional distress, please contact the Samaritans of Thailand 24-hour hotline: 02 713 6791 (English), 02 713 6793 (Thai) or the Thai Mental Health Hotline at 1323 (Thai).
