Pattaya animal control officers rounded up a pack of six stray dogs that had attacked tourists on Beach Road.

An 8-year-old German-Thai child was bitten the week of Aug. 15 and was taken to Pattaya Hospital, which will begin a series of rabies injections.

Following the attack, a beach vendor called city hall to report that the pack of dogs slept around beach umbrellas and often went after children and tourists, causing many injuries.
