A retired policeman on Tuesday urged the Livestock Department to sterilize abandoned dogs and cats at a temple in Trang's Na Yong district.

Pol Lt Suwan Kruathong, 62, said there are more than 100 abandoned dogs and cats at the Hua Khao Temple in Moo 6 villlage in Tambon Na Muen Si.

He said many of the dogs are sick and have skin disease due to parasites.

He urged officials to step in and help the animals.

On Tuesday, Suwan, some of his retired police friends, and other people bought medicine for the animals. He cooked rice and mixed it with medicine to feed the animals.

The abandoned dogs and cats are now living in front of the giant Buddha image at the temple. Many have been run over and killed by passing vehicles, he added.
