Great Danes belonging to a dog breeder in Thailand were left to starve to death their owner fell on hard times and walked away. As reported Metro U.K., the dogs were locked up without food for weeks before anyone came to their rescue.
The disturbing situation took place in Pathum Thani, which is approximately 25 miles outside of Bangkok. By the time that help arrived, a mother dog and two of her pups had already starved to death. The surviving dogs were skeletal.
Amazingly, something good has come from this horrible tragedy. After the surviving dogs were moved to the Livestock Development’s Animal Centre to recuperate, King Rama X, Thailand’s king, announced that he and his staff would adopt them all. A spokesman stated:
”We have received a Royal command from His Majesty The King. His Royal Highness has commanded a delegation to adopt the dogs at the Animal Welfare Division.”
Watchdog Thailand is assisting with the dogs’ recovery and their prior owner is expected to face criminal animal cruelty charges.
