  • 50 Thai dogs saved from puppy mill owned by American man

    Watchdog Thailand a non-profit organization has saved 50 Thai Ridgeback dogs from a puppy mill owned by an American man.

    The post 50 Thai dogs saved from puppy mill owned by American man appeared first on ThaiResidents.com - Thai Local News - Thai News.

    Watchdog Thailand a non-profit organization has saved 50 Thai Ridgeback dogs from a puppy mill owned by an American man. Most of the dogs are found in terrible conditions and many have died from the same illnesses and starvation. The owner states that the dogs are kept as pets and he was not breeding them for sale but history shows otherwise. Watchdog representatives went to the Sarapee Police Station in Chiang Mai on 2 July 2020 to file a report with charges related to animal cruelty against a 73-year-old American man.

    The American has been breeding Thai Ridgeback dogs to sell and export to buyers abroad. The owner himself contacted Watchdog asking for help claiming that he has become ill and can no longer take care of his pets consisting of over 50 dogs. Watchdog went to inspect the location and discovered that the dogs were living in an extremely unhygienic environment. Most of the dogs had scabies and were starving. Watchdog claims that many were left to die with no empathy.  Watchdog Thailand contacted the police and the Chiang Mai Department of Livestock Development (DLD) on 1 July 2020. 

     

    Representatives went to rescue the dogs and moved them to the Save Elephant Foundation in Mae Rim. The man would not give up 5 dogs that were still healthy. The foundation disagreed with his demands as they believed the man lacks the ability to take care of the dogs. History also shows he has been involved in animal cruelty to his own pets many times. Watchdog realized that they needed police involvement in the case to help save the remaining 5 dogs.

    The man lives alone and is currently ill. He asked for help from a foreign volunteer at Watchdog who then passed the information to the organization. Watchdog went to where the dogs lived and saw that dog cages were stacked on top of each other. They had no space to play and exercise. The dog’s waste was everywhere, most of them were very ill and starving. Dogs were still left where they died, instead of getting buried. 

     

    Animal lovers abroad have given information on the man stating that he has a past in animal cruelty and dogs were harmed or left to die after they served no purpose. He has been selling dogs at a very high price tag without any proper license to breed dogs. Watchdog wants to bring all the dogs into their care, the Chaing Mai DLD agrees that this man cannot take responsibility for his dogs. The man claims that he contacted Watchdog for help and he has never bred dogs for sale but they kept on having puppies. He has also filed a report with the police claiming that Watchdog stole his dogs.

    The nightlife scene is now reopened on Bangla Road, Patong, Phuket Province. Not many tourists are seen walking on the street compared to before the Covid-19 situation but this is a good start. Nightclubs and bars reopen for the first night on 1 July 2020. Bangla Street is well known as a nightlife destination in Phuket for local and international tourists. About 30 businesses have joined in the reopening making sure to follow strict safety regulations as a precaution against the virus.

    Soon after sunset tourists started to arrive in Bangla, each exploring the businesses that are now back in business. Every person entering the street must have their temperature measured, and walk through a disinfection tunnel placed at the entrance and exit on the street. Most businesses require customers to sanitize their hands again before entering the building.  The street is now ready to support tourists from abroad when the conditions allow for international travel once again, it might not be happening soon, but business owners are now in good hopes. Most of the customers on the street are local tourists, foreign tourists stuck in Thailand, and expats living in Thailand.

    Tangkwa a nightlife tourist, stated that she lives in Patong and loves visiting entertainment businesses. Before the Covid-19 situation, she was a regular customer in Bangla. Tangkwa is happy that nightclubs and bars are now back running. There are not many tourists walking on the first night, but she believes that this is a good sign for things returning back to normal. The tourist does fear the return of COVID as there are strong safety measures. Nightclubs and bars must follow 22 rules to help protect employees and customers. Tangkwa now believes that the tourism in Phuket can return to normal after visiting Bangla on the first night of reopening.

    The post Gold shop burns down in Ying Charoen Market fire. appeared first on ThaiResidents.com - Thai Local News - Thai News.

    There has been a fire at the Ying Charoen Market in Bang Khen, Bangkok. This is a very old market in Northern Bangkok. With over 20 fire trucks and strong teamwork from firefighters, the flames were finally under control after 2 hours. Thankfully no one has been injured from the fire, as it started when the market was closed. Prasong Wachirawutchai a gold shop owner in the market stated that he has been selling gold in the market for over 30 years and this is the first fire ever. The flames started during the night and Prasong was quickly notified.

    The gold shop owner went to the market right away after receiving a call. He was too late and the gold shop was already in flames. Prasong wanted to go in but it was impossible, it was just too hot and dangerous inside. Prasong reveals that most of the gold is stored in a safe, which is about 20-30 kilograms of gold worth tens of millions THB. The owner is not sure if the safe is fireproof and fears that the gold inside might have already melted. The safe cannot be opened as the fire has melted the password panel on the safe so it has been moved into storage at a bank. The rest of the gold worth about 1 million THB was on display in the shop, there is no gold shop insurance. 

     

    Nipaporn Jeenmai the owner of an optical shop in the market stated that she witnessed the fire. When Nipaporn saw the flames she tried to save the products in her store. She ran into the store and tried to carry as many pairs of glasses as she could. The owner forgot to think about her own safety and was running past fire with fear that her products would be burned in the incident. The fire quickly spread across the market in less than 10 minutes.

If the van driver wants to apologize then she is willing to accept the apology. She wants the problem to end so they can each continue on with their lives. The victim further explains that on the date of the incident Montri had misunderstood what she said.
