A kind dog,KaiTom, was accused of killing a chicken but there was no evidence and he was shot dead. The owner did not have confidence to file a report or give statement at the police station because he was afraid that the shooter was having close relationship with policemen.
WDT was informed of an animal cruelty incident. KaiTom was a kind dog. He would follow anyone who called him. The owner of KaiTom, an elder man living with his nephew, claimed that the shooter was a powerful man. The shooter has a chicken farm and used to have an attempt to shoot another dog before but the dog got away. This time the ill-fated KaiTom got shot.
Pol. Col. Wisuth Klaisang Superintendent Wat Bot Police Station was contacted by WDT. Officers were sent to investigate the scene of shooting for further evidences.
Government officials have duty and power to press charge against animal cruelty. The case under the CRUELTY PREVENTION AND WELFARE OF ANIMAL ACT,
B.E. 2557 (2014) shall be deemed to settle under Criminal Procedure Code and is a Public Offence.
Wait for more investigative results from the police so the justice shall be made for KaiTom.
