‘Condo’ a female pit bull aged a year and three months was shot dead, WDT was informed. Condo shook off his leash and bit the neighboring dog. A neighbor who was not the owner of the bitten dog grabbed a gun and shot him dead with only one reason Condo was a pit bull.
According to hearsay, he threatened to kill Condo many times because he scared of pit bull.
Condo was a young kind dog. He never bit or caused any problem to anyone.
Pol. Col. Kittipong Pansri, Superintendent Nong Kham Police Station was contacted by WDT to supervise the case. Pol. Lt. Saknarin Akrapongchai, Sub-inspector (Inquiry) was assigned to be a case officer who inspected the crime scene and took statement. The shooter will be summoned to hear three charges on Animals Cruelty, Offence of Mischief and Firearms Act.
Two thousand Baht was given to the mother of the dog’s owner for compensation but WDT advised to return the money and press charge instead. Offence of Mischief is a criminal damage where the penalty is higher than Animal Cruelty. More important, money is worth nothing compared to the loss of his precious pet.
Follow this case at Nong Kham Police Station with WDT.
