Couple accused of dog poisoning, selling meat

A married couple has been arrested in Kampong Cham province’s Batheay district on suspicion of poisoning dogs and selling their meat for human consumption. Oeum Yun, district police chief, said the couple had been dropping a mixture of pork and poison in the streets of numerous districts across Kampong Cham, before returning later to collect the carcasses of canines that had consumed the food. “We arrested them as they came back to collect the dogs that died after eating the poisonous food,” he said. Oeum Yun said he was aware of about 30 dogs, including two of his own, that had gone missing in recent months, but added that the suspects had admitted to obtaining and selling about 200 canines. He said that the couple, arrested on Tuesday, had been selling the meat to customers in Phnom Penh.
