CHIANGRAI TIMES– The canines are believed to have been destined for dinner tables in a neighbouring country. Police yesterday seized 630 canines discovered in a warehouse in Mukdahan’s Wan Yai district and another 250 canines present in cages left in a wooded area of Muang district.

Following a tip-off that caged canines had been abandoned in a wooded area in Ban Soon Mai, police and Mukdahan veterinarian Narong Rattanatraiwong went to inquire in to and found 11 cages, each containing 10-15 canines, scattered in the woods. It is believed that after being alerted to the warehouse seizures, dog smugglers changed their route but ran in to a dead-end and abandoned the cages before fleeing. Mukdahan officials, having no facilities to support the canines, sent them to a center in Buri Ram.

Following an 8am tip-off that dogs’ wails could be heard coming from the warehouse, located on the Mekong riverbank in Tambon Wan Noi, police found 42 cages, each containing 15 to twenty canines. They suspected dog smugglers were keeping them there for transport across the Mekong River.
