Hundreds of dog skins have been found dumped in a forest in Sakhon Nakon province in an area notorious for exporting canine meat and skins used for making leather for items such as golf gloves, police said Wednesday.
Acting on a tip-off, police made the gruesome discovery in bags left next to a large pile of dog bones in a forest on Tuesday in Muang district, Sakon Nakhon, which borders Laos.
"The skins would be bleached - some are then sent by smugglers to other countries to be made into gloves for playing golf," Pol Sub Lt Lamai Sakolpitak, the deputy superintendent of the provincial police force, said.
