“A Thai navy patrol caught a gang of dog smugglers Thursday morning on the shore of the Mekong River in Nakhon Phanom province,” the Associated Press has quoted Capt. Thirakiat Thongaram as saying.
The Mekong River flows through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
The dogs were found in small rusty cages near a boat and were meant for slaughtering to prepare dog meat dishes in Vietnam.
A man named Preecha Utthasri was also arrested by the Thai Navy patrol officials while his accomplices managed to flee.
