Krod Yodjongrum, owner of the Thai sausage that unexpectedly contained a kitten corpse, rejected officers’ requests to transfer the corpse to their possession for an autopsy. In explanation of her actions, Krod stated that she believed that the sausage was the abode of nine goddesses.
As Coconuts Bangkok reported yesterday, Krod, a 52-year-old Buri Ram resident, discovered a kitten corpse in a length of Thai sausage. Rather than dispose of the sausage, she has elected to put it on display and make offerings to it. Her neighbors have taken to asking it for tips on their lotto purchases. Krod said that a spirit medium had told her that if the sausage had been moved out of the village, calamities might have occurred.
Krod, at the moment, has decided to allows police officers to only cut a small amount of tissue from the corpse for inspection. She will hold a merit-making Buddhist ritual dedicated to the deceased feline on Mar. 21.
According to MThai, Satuek authorities said that the sausage’s maker had conducted business for about two years and this was the first irregularity.
