CHIANG RAI: Residents of the small border community of Ban Jalor say they had little choice but to hand over more than 100 pet dogs and cats to livestock officials to be put down after eight canines in the area were infected with rabies.

They could not afford the alternative presented to them by livestock officials, quarantine the animals for six months in cages or fenced enclosures they would have to build themselves.
