On December 29th, our undercover investigators, acting on a tip-off, coordinated with the Royal Thai Police and the local deputy Sheriff to conduct a raid on what turned out to be one of the biggest dog meat wholesalers in the region.
The raid took place near the city of Chiang Rai, in northern Thailand, where the police swooped in and immediately arrested the criminal in question. A quantity of cooked dog meat and 3 kilos of frozen dog meat were seized as evidence.
The wholesaler was immediately transferred to the police station and under intense interrogation, revealed the source of where he had purchased the meat. The police were swift to act on this new intelligence and officers were dispatched to the premises of the butcher in question.
Forced to break into the property, they immediately arrested the butcher and his accomplices. Under interrogation, the butcher confessed he had been on the verge of quitting the trade for good due to the increased negativity surrounding it. These criminals will now be prosecuted and their barbaric businesses have been shut down forever.
These events are yet more positive developments in our fight to end this vicious trade but we must keep the pressure on! Increased campaigning and our public awareness billboards are proving to be huge deterrents but the war is not yet over.
