    I understand very well why this gentleman (Mr. Tawee Kraikupt) kills this dog. I am retired in Jomtien for one year. I have a son of 3 years old. We walk together every day but, at least once a month, my son is attacked by a dog. These animals feel the weakness of a child. I do not know how to defend my son because when I kick off the dogs, sometimes Thai People defend the dogs and I don’t want to break the law. What can I do in that case ?
