  • The Street

  • It has been estimated that there are around

    300,000 stray dogs living in Bangkok.

  • There are around 500,000 stray cats

    living in Bangkok

  • Mr Teerachon said the pigeons would have a better life

    outside the city. He said the birds' lives now were "no

    different from stray dogs' in the city".

    -Bangkok Post-

  • Approximately 250-300 squirrels are sold across

    Chatuchak Weekend Market. Unlike the legal

    dealers, the vendors selling illegal species had the

    sign No Photo in both Thai and English.

  • "Most people don't realize

    how many animals die on

    the road every day - they

    just don't see it,"

    -Ron Ringen, a.k.a.

    Doctor Roadkill-

  • The Zoo

  • There are no wild animals

    until man makes them so.

    -Mark Twain-

  • Bangkoks 65-year-old Dusit Zoo has around

    1,600 animals. The zoo gets an average of

    2.5 million visitors each year.

  • The question is not, Can they reason? nor,

    Can they talk? but rather, Can they suffer?

    -Jeremy Bentham-

  • Those who wish to pet and baby

    wild animals "love" them. But

    those who respect their natures and

    wish to let them live normal lives,

    love them more.

    -Edwin Way Tale-

  • Pets

  • I believe in animal rights, and high among them is the

    right to the gentle stroke of a human hand.

    -Robert Brault-

  • The owner tied the dog in this parking lot as soon

    as it grew too big for the house, said a neighbor.

    The owner just comes around to give food and

    water. She has never untied that rope.
