A man who allegedly shot and killed a soi dog now faces animal abuse charges under Thailand’s 2014 Animal Welfare Law, according to The Nation.

A video recording captured the “drive-by dog shooting” incident, which happened on January 13 near the Imperial Lat Phrao mall, and didn’t take long to go viral on social media.

The alleged shooter turned himself in to the Thai police, admitting that his car was the one seen in the video but claimed he did not kill the dog, reports The Nation.

Chaninat and Leeds’ Thailand personal injuryattorneys have received sizable recoveries on behalf of our Thai and foreign clients since 1997.

The suspect was charged with killing an animal without any reason under the 2014 Prevention of Animal Cruelty and Provision of Animal Welfare Act, recently enacted in November 2014.
