CHACHOENGSAO – Car killed a monk and his dog at six o’clock in the morning. The driver made a run for it.
The monk, named Seng Modnut, 69-years-old, had been a monk for nine years. His corpse lay face down on the bitumen in a blood puddle.
Both his arms still clutched a holy food bowl. Next to him were a pair of glasses and a lunch box. Three paces to the right, a Thai breed male brown dog lay on the ground.
The rescue team thought the dog was dead, but later found it moaning in pain. Both its hind legs had been snapped as it tried to use its front legs to move closer to the monk’s body.
The affection and love the dog showed for the monk put police officers on the scene in a mood of sorrow and deep sympathy.
