    700 Dog Trader Caught in Nakhon Phanom

    Arrested by a Mekong Riverine Operation Unit in Nakhon Phanom, rescuing 700 dogs which were bound for Vietnam.

    LCDR Kritsana Choosai, chief of a Mekong River patrol unit in Nakhon Phanom, led officials to intercept a white six-wheel truck with Sakon Nakhon-registered license plates on Nakhon Phanom-Ban Phang Road.

    There were 700 dogs loaded on the truck.

    The driver, Mr Salut Kotetakok age 43, was arrested and taken in for questioning.

    Nakhon Phanom provincial livestock has coordinated with related agencies to distribute the dogs to different locations to avoid overcrowding situations, otherwise the dogs may develop infection or die.

    The Nakhon Phanom Animal Quarantine Station was now overcrowded with dogs, as there were 773 dogs in custody after an earlier arrest on 25 July, where 548 dogs were rescued from a trafficking ring and sent to the station, and the total stood at 1,321 dogs.

    If 700 dogs were added to this station, that would be more than 2,000 dogs, where the capacity of the facility was only 800-1,000 dogs.

    The dog smuggling was also a problem as dog meat was still popular in some countries and illegal traders were continually trying to smuggle dogs into these countries.

    I hope they can set up a center closer to this city so we can get help to the dogs.
