Dog Causes SuicideA construction worker in Sattahip has been found hanging from a tree after he beat a dog to death with a piece of wood.
SATTAHIP – September 24,2015 [PattayaDailyNews]; at 10.30 a.m., Pol.Lt. Sinsamoot Boonthassana was notified that a Thai man had been found hanging from a tree in a garden in Sattahip.
At the scene the officers found the body of Mr. Prasong Prasartnok, a 32 year old construction worker from Nakhon Ratchasima. He had been dead for around an hour. Approximately 10 meters away was the body of a dog called Toob.
Upon questioning Mr. Naret Yothawong, aged 33, who was a relative of Mr. Prasong (a deceased), he told the police that Mr. Prasong was a cheerful character and didn’t have any problems, but Yesterday when they were sat drinking there was a group of children buying some grilled chicken when the dog jumped up and snatched a piece of chicken out of one of the child’s hands which made Mr Prasong very angry. He then hit the dog with a piece of wood and threw the dog over a wall. The next day he found that the dog was dead so Mr. Naret assumed that Mr. Prasong was afraid of being punished by the law and decided to hang himself to escape the problem.
