Animal cruelty could be a criminal offence under the Thai penal code: Section 381 Whoever, cruelly ill-treats or kills an animal with unnecessary sufferings, shall be punished with imprisonment not exceeding one month or fined not exceeding one thousand Baht, or both. Section 382 Whoever, overworking the animal unreasonably or using it to do the unsuitable work on account of it to be ill, old or young, shall be imprisoned not out of one month or fined not out of one thousand Baht, or both.
