Dead squirrel blamed for messing up the beach in Pattaya!

PATTAYA: -- Municipal authorities in Pattaya have come up with a novel excuse for the terrible sewage spewing out into Wong Amat beach in North Pattaya at the weekend.

 

They have blamed a squirrel.

 

The animal was found to have caused a short that led to a pump malfunctioning. This meant that raw sewage from a treatment facility at a reservoir nearby entered the sea for a while.

 

The culprit was found dead.

 

Electrical engineers have been changing a high voltage fuse and the Pattaya authorities said that everything was now back to normal, reported 77Jowo.

 

Tourists and locals had cried foul at the weekend and demanded an inquiry as the sea turned black and smelly on a whole swathe of the beach.

Have quite a few squirrels in the trees opposite my house and I live at the end of Nern Plubwan on the dark side.

That answer does sound a bit squirrely, doesn't it? A bit nuts, to say the least. I've seen decent number of those bushy tailed rats on Jomtien Beach.

I lived in Pattaya for 7 years and saw one, just ONE squirrel in that entire time, and that was in the woods, 30 miles outside of town.

 

Now, if they'd said rat, I'd believe them. I've seen hundreds of them in town.

 

You havent been looking in enough switchboards then and especially in Pattaya, near the red lights.

I suppose I was too busy trying to not get run over by either a moto or a katoey or a bus or a mob of Chinese tourists to be able to pay attention to the squirrels?

At least Thai engineers are able to blame a squirrel who liked cables.
