A 4 year old boy was attacked on Klong Hang beach, Ao Nang, in Krabi by a pack of stray dogs. The young boy, Attachai, was with his mother, brothers and sisters, playing on the popular beach at the front of a hotel yesterday morning.

A pack of 4 local stray dogs were lurking nearby. 2 of them ran at the young boy. As Attachai tried to run away the 2 dogs kept attacking and biting at his legs. The dogs kept biting and snapping at his legs and tried to drag him away before the hotel’s gardener came to the rescue to help the distressed mother.

Attachai was quickly taken to hospital.

Local rescue volunteers told 77kaoded that the attack was the first attack of its kind since 5 year old Finnish boy was attacked in February 2019.

After last years attack, the Chief of Krabi Provincial Livestock said that 13 strays had been caught at Ao Nang Beach.

“One of the dogs has been kept and tested for rabies. We are finding other places for these stray dogs.”

    Far too many dog attacks on people. Time for the country to do something about the epidemic of strays.

    People don’t know what “rabies” mean here. And I doubt many dog owners here can afford the shots even if they do know.

    There is too much sentimentality about dogs.
    I love dogs, however I spent some of my childhood on a farm.
    My grandfather had zero tolerance for a dog that misbehaved.
    He would put the dog in a sack and dunk it in the horse trough a few times. This did not harm the dogs, but scared the hell out of it.
    Any dogs that attack a child should be put down.
    Dogs are like people. Some are good. Some are bad.
    Bad dogs if they are bad enough should be put down.
