Livestock development officials raided a house in Ubon Ratchathani’s Muang district early on Tuesday and arrested the owner for allegedly operating a slaughterhouse without a licence.

Sorawit Thaneeto, director-general of the Livestock Development Department, said officials checked the house in Ban Nong Kae village in tambon Jaeramae following the neighbours' complaints of bad smells.

Officials found workers had slaughtered three water buffaloes. The workers fled upon seeing the officials.

The house owner, Somjit Muenthao, was arrested and charged with operating a slaughterhouse without a licence and slaughtering animals without first informing the authorities of their number and source.
