Sattahip, Chonburi —

A dozen street dogs inhabiting a parking lot in Chonburi’s Sattahip district were anesthetized and taken to a dog shelter after reportedly causing mischief while chasing cats.

The dogs (9 male and 3 female) were captured on Wednesday, November 23rd, following CCTV footage of them chasing 4-5 cats around vehicles parked at a parking lot at the Sattahip fresh market.

The naughty dogs were clearly seen bitting at and scratching vehicles while they tried to attack their more nimble enemies.

The operation was led by Mr. Torsak Trakulthongchai, Deputy Mayor of Sattahip. All twelve captured dogs were confirmed as stray dogs, Torsak said, and they might be hostile to people, so they would be removed from the street and taken to the Sattahip Naval Stray Dog Care Center.

The deputy mayor said he would have as many stray dogs vaccinated against rabies and sterilized to prevent them from harming people.
