Soi dog feeding is not a good idea: som nam na.

Unless you happen to be a dog living in a Soi

I do not have up to date stats nor can I corroborate with empirical research...

 

But common belief, including mine, tends to consider Pattaya very unsafe for farangs...

MEMO to snatch and grab thieves.

Please specifically target soi dog feeding tourists, locals and self defined good samaritans.

 

It's easy pickens and will discourage this misguided dog feeding

It seems this sort of target robbery by thief or thieves using motor cycles / scooters is becoming very common. See a lot of reports in UK about this now too.

 

Everyone just has to be more careful; and at a time when many countries take measures to prevent their citizens protecting themselves.

Which countries are taking measures to prevent their citizens protecting themselves?

 

What measures are they taking?

 

I only ask so I can avoid those places.

 

Thank you for you advice.

either it is or it is getting reported more, perhaps due to the increase in cctv cameras. The video makes it easier for people to be confident in reporting it because they think the cops can find the guy(s). and cops are more confident as well, so it gets reported as news. 

 

the wife's auntie was on the bicycle at 6 am going to the market in soi about 1 km away from Rajaprasong, from the family house that has been there for 50 years. motorcycle with 2 guys were waiting and started the engine and raced at her and stole her necklace and tried to get the handbag but failed. The necklace was fake gold and worth nothing. It looked like fake gold too, so these guys prob were more opportunist than pros. 

 

there certainly are loads of signs up in certain areas of Bkk that say "BEWARE OF BAG SNATCHING THIEVES IN THIS AREA"

I think it is wrong to feel stray dogs in someone else's neighborhood.

 

Dogs band together in packs, make a lot of noise and frequently attack children and people.

 

If you want to be kind to the dogs, adopt them and take them home.
