Poison warning to Nai Harn dog owners

NAI HARN: Dog owners who take their animals for exercise on Nai Harn Beach are advised to keep them on the leash – or walk them somewhere else – as poisoners are once again at work.

David Couchman, a retiree who lives in the area and walks his dogs on the beach, told the Gazette this evening that he knows of four owned dogs and at least one beach dog that have died after eating food left lying around at the southern end of the beach, the end nearest to the windmills.

The poison is believed to have been arsenic, injected into pieces of chicken.

Officials from Rawai Tambon Administration Organization, which administers the area, were not available for comment at time of upload.
