    A Thai woman and her foreign husband have a leopard that they keep as a pet inside the property. They recently moved to Chonburi and villagers became scared after hearing what they had as a pet and decided to notify the authorities.

    Officers from the Thailand Wildlife Enforcement Network: Thailand-WEN and related officers went to inspect a home located in Sattahip, Chonburi after villagers notified them of a leopard being kept as a pet. The villagers stated that the leopard was treated as if it was a normal pet living together with the residents of the home.

    Villagers fear that the leopard was acquired illegally and that it might run out of the home and attack people in the area. The people asked the authorities to come to check and make sure that no one will be hurt in the future.

    The officers went to inspect the home at 14.30 on 2 September 2019. They found a 2 Story Pink House. Surrounding the home was a high concrete gate with 1-inch metal wires on top coming to a total height of 3 meters. Nittiya the wife allowed the officers inside to search her home.

    Nittaya stated that she had just moved into the new home for 5 days with her foreign husband from Chiang Mai. She brought their pet male leopard named “Typhoon” to live with the couple in the new home. Typhoon has been raised by the couple since birth and is now 4 years old.

    The officers saw that the homeowners have the right to keep the leopard, but Nittiya will have to notify Protected Areas Regional Office 2 (Si Racha) for a license to keep the Leopard in the area responsible under the office.

    CHONBURI — An official on Wednesday confirmed two police auxiliaries beat up a motorcycle crash victim inside a hospital in Chonburi province earlier this month.

    The officers were “reprimanded” for the assault, which was captured in CCTV footage that went viral yesterday, according to local administrator Pakasit Sueksongkram. Pakasit said the assaulted victim refused to stop at a checkpoint earlier and crashed into one of the police volunteers manning the barricade, seriously wounding him.

    “I reprimanded them and told them that they should think before doing anything, because they are security officers,” Pakasit said, without naming the two men.

    Police volunteers, or arsa, are civilians who typically support the main police force in tasks like manning checkpoints, patrolling, and directing traffic.

    In the video, a group of policemen and police volunteers are seen standing around a man resting on a bed in an emergency room. Two of the volunteers then curtain off the bed and appear to punch the man repeatedly.

    The video surfaced on the internet yesterday and drew numerous negative comments aimed at the two police volunteers. Pakasit said the incident took place on Aug. 18 at Burapha University Hospital.

    Pakasit said the man was a member of a street racer gang, or dek van, who struck a police volunteer with his motorcycle and left him with two broken legs. The alleged gang member was also brought to hospital for non-serious injuries, where the volunteer’s friends caught up with him, according to Pakasit.

    He added that the Chonburi district chief and the provincial governor have been informed of the assault, and may issue additional punishment to the two volunteers.

    Speaking to Channel 3 in an interview, Burapha University Hospital director Suriya Prongnamjai said his staff, who were mostly women, were too intimidated to intervene.

    Suriya added that medical personnel told the police and volunteers not to enter the emergency room, but to no avail.

    “The staff themselves were frightened and demoralized,” the hospital director said.

    Police spokesman Krissana Pattanacharoen said the two men seen punching the patient were not enlisted police officers, but added that a fact-finding committee would be convened to determine what happened.

    “Although the assaulted man was a suspect, the police have no right to harm him,” the spokesman told reporters.
