Health Department workers rounded up a group of stray dogs, but only sterilized and vaccinated them before returning the mutts to the East Pattaya streets.
Deputy Mayor Manote Nongyai and Surapong Wongsuttawad, head of the Veterinary Office, inspected a field next to G Garage on Sukhumvit Soi 15 near Pattaya Technological College July 8.
Garage owner Sophon Makampom had complained about the pack of soi dogs that lived in the field, saying they bred often and he was worried about them biting children.
Dog catchers rounded up the strays and brought them to a shelter where they are being sterilized, vaccinated and given health care. Then the city plans to return the wild dogs to the street because neighbors around the feed them daily.
