Enterprising trio caught bloody-handed selling dogflesh by the bag

Seventy kilograms of raw and cooked dog flesh were seized from three energetic entrepreneurs in Isaan yesterday.

Officers with an animal trafficking special unit confiscated the frozen dogmeat and arrested the three vendors behind the roadside shop in Sakon Nakhon province.

Pichet Inthisaen, Jantima Bantongdee and Wanchai Chantasaeng told police how hard they worked to collect all those dead dogs. They told of how they’d spent more than five months traveling to different villages to trade stuff in exchange for the dogs. Sometimes they would collect some road-kill dog corpses.

They sold the meat on a set menu: raw meat sets were THB80; THB100 for a set of cooked dogmeat.

Apparently their operation wasn’t winning any awards for sanitary food preparation. Villagers concerned about hygiene and health issues turned them into the police, Spring News reported.
