The attack on "Jao Khao" or "Whitey" caused a storm and reached the police at Hua Mark, Bangkok who charged Anon Meksan with animal cruelty Friday.

In the first clip the man, who admits the charge, is seen attacking the dog as it is tethered to a post outside an apartment block in the early hours of the morning. In a second clip he finished off the job by stabbing the mutt many times in the neck with a knife before dumping him in a black bag as trash.

He didnt't tell anyone what he had done but the 2.45am CCTV coverage from near the end of Ramkhamhaeng Soi 60/2 was shared revealing his actions to the Thai public online and on national television.

The chicken rice vendor said that the dog have previously bit his seven year old son. The female poster of the clip said that neighbours had paid for the son's treatment, tethered the dog and got it a muzzle. They were apparently planning on finding it a better home after the Songkran holidays.

The case is expected to go to court today. Anon faces up to two years in jail or a 40,000 baht fine on animal cruelty charges and police have also laid a charge on having a weapon in a public place, namely a knife.

Police said that Anon was within his rights to counter claim, if the dog had an owner, that they had allowed the animal to roam causing danger to others.

From this case we've chosen, there is still controversy about the aspects towards this case. Some people think it's fine to kill the dog because it was just a stray dog. If you don't, the dog may probably attack other people again. On the other hand, some people disagree with it and consider it as an animal cruelty. From your point of view, what do you think about this case and can you explain why? (Australian and British only )

(Please let me win!) I think it is animal cruelty. First, He did not have to attack the dog. The dog was muzzled and could not have hurt anyone else. He did it just for revenge. The dog was not even ever going to attack someone again because of the muzzle strap thing.
