The world of Thai social media was in uproar after it emerged that a pick-up driver had attached a rope to two cats and dragged them on the road behind his vehicle.
Animal rights groups in Trang in the south of Thailand demanded that police act to find the driver of the Mitsubishi Triton with the license plate 1041.
Thai Rath reporters went to the area where they spoke to a gas station employee called Wisanon Jaiwang, 25, who confirmed the story.
He said the driver – who he recognized as a regular customer though he doesn’t know his identity – arrived to use the ATM. He was in a flustered state.
Staff saw the cats attached by their necks to a rope. One was already dead but another was still alive.
When the driver saw the commotion he climbed hurriedly into his cab and raced off.
A chase ensued with another vehicle but was unable to catch the driver.
The dead cats were then photographed on the road.
No one was able to get the letters on the plate as they were obscured and CCTV did not manage to film the driver’s face. But he was a tall male.
Cat and dog rights groups and netizens urged the police to find the driver.
