MUKDAHAN - About two hundred dogs were rescued from a smuggling racket on Sunday as they were about to be taken across the Mekong River, police said. 

The dogs, crammed into cages on the back of two pickup trucks, were intercepted by members of the navy’s Mekong Riverine Operation Unit (MROU) while being transported to tambon Bang Sai Yai in Muang district, where they were to be shipped to Laos.

The animals, most of which appeared exhausted, were reportedly destined for slaughterhouses to be turned into food, MROU commander Surasak Suwannakaesa said.
