Is the meat suitable for eating after the dog has been poisoned?

I know, they sell the meat. They don't care if people eating it get poisoned, as long as they get money.

Hard to know what actually happened in this case, but from other reports, poisoning dogs is not standard procedure for commercial dog-nappers.

If this was really the case they would not sell many dogs. Seriously, killing off your customers is not an economically sound business practice.

Dog nappers use the noose-on-a-stick method. People who dislike your dog for some reason poison it. Or it could have eaten poison meant for something else, if you let your pets roam the streets at night, digging in people's rubbish, they could be eating anything.

I have seen a rabid dog beaten in Kompong Thom. The owner allowed the man who successfully clubbed it to keep it as an apology for it biting his dog and nearly biting him. They made a bonfire, use a machete to cut all the hair as best as possible, dumped it in the fire (vs grilling it over the fire which was interesting). I'm not sure what happened to his dog that was bitten.

I think this is more a case of an annoyed neighbor who was sick of a dog barking and trying to nip at her while riding the moto past the house everyday. An easy way to solve the problem. Sad nevertheless.

I agree. It could have also eaten something bad. It also kind a looks like Parvo as I believe it usually involves bleeding from the anus.

Thieves wanting to steal from your house poison not dog nappers. They say two egg yolks down the dogs throat straight away will clear out the poison
