At 3:30pm on the 5th November, Police Senior Sergeant Major Saengrit from the Crime Suppression Division of Wang Thong Police station in Phitsanuloke province received a report from villagers that they had found a monk lying unconscious by a monastery in Wang Thong district, so he went to investigate along with rescue services. The scene was a grove about 100m from the monastery where they found the still gently breathing, but unconscious body of Monk Yo (assumed name), aged 64, lying in a gully. His lower garments were hitched up above his knees and his legs covered in ants.
Near him was a light brown 3-4 year old female Bang Kaeow dog which was tied to a tree by its neck and body with nylon cord. An inspection revealed dried semen on the dog's sexual organs. There was also a pile of food and a bottle of washing up liquid which are being kept as evidence. The monk was rushed to Wang Thong hospital but due to the serious nature of his condition he was moved to Buddhachinaraj Hospital in Phitsanuloke.
An investigation revealed that before the incident, villagers were in the communal garden picking herbs when they heard the sound of a dog howling and wailing so they followed the sound and came upon the monk having sexual intercourse with the aforementioned dog, whereupon he suddenly fell down unconscious. It is surmised that he had sexual intercourse several times before he went into shock and lost consciousness.
Abbot Rung (assumed name) revealed that Monk Yo was a monk in another monastery in Amphur Wang Thong. Two days previously he had asked for permission to stay in the temple for 4 days. While in the monastery he kept to himself and didn't talk much with the other monks until the shameful incident occurred.
After the news spread, people travelled in from all around to see the unfortunate dog and curse the monk for his conduct.
