A grandpa was attacked in Nampong, Khon Kaen District by two dogs and received 10 stitches at the hospital. The grandpa is still recovering from the injuries and is scared that the dogs will attack again. The incident was shared by Facebook user Warapron Kamwicha stating that a street dog came into a farm and attacked the pigs, ducks, and chickens. The 75-year-old grandpa tried to chase the dog away but instead, he was attacked leaving behind open wounds in several spots.
Two male dogs, one black and one white attacked the grandpa. Warapron stated that the white dog is a street dog but the black dog has an owner, but since the attack happened the owner chooses to stay silent. There are more dogs behind the owner’s home and the dogs continue to have more puppies. When asked why the dogs aren’t sterilized the owner claims that the dogs run away.
Officials from the Nampong Police Station and village leader visited Kwang Kamwicha 75 years old on 24 February 2020. Kwang was on the farm and was still recovering from the attack. He had wounds on both legs and both hands. Kwang stated that he has been selling pigs for a long time. 3 days before the incident one of his male pigs died from a dog attack. Then on 18 February 2020, he heard a pig crying at 4 am. When Kwang came to see what was happening he saw 2 dogs chasing the pigs that were only 30 days old, out of 13 piglets, 2 died. Kwang ran in to help the injured piglets and this is when he was attacked.
Kwang reveals that he doesn’t want the dogs killed, he just wants them moved to somewhere that is safe for both humans and the dogs. Thankfully while he was being attacked his wife and child came out to chase the dogs away or Kwang might’ve been in worse condition. While Kwang was at the hospital his family tried looking for both dogs and found them 200 meters away from the farm sleeping on the road covered in blood. The family contacted the local municipality to move the group of 6-10 dogs away with fear that other villagers will be attacked, but the dogs remain in the same area.
