Dog-meat traders arrested

BANGKOK: Thai police have arrested three men who allegedly cruised through a town in a pick-up truck mounted with a loud-speaker offering to trade Tupperware for dogs, which were to be sent to the northeast to be butchered as meat, a news report said yesterday. 

When the three were picked up on Wednesday in Ratchburi, 100km southwest of here, they had already collected 13 dogs in a cage in the back of their truck, police told the Bangkok Post

One of the dog-collectors was reported to have admitted he intended to sell the dogs to a meat trader in northeastern Thailand. All three men were charged with unlicensed trading in animals. – dpa
