Representatives of Thai horse breeders filed a letter to Anwar Salae, chairman of the Commerce and Intellectual Property Committee, complaining about the death of more than 600 horses nationwide. 

Dr Shettapong Meksumpun, one of the representatives, said it was the committee's responsibility to find out the source of the African Horse Sickness. 

They also said it is necessary to get a relevant organisation to help find a sustainable solution, because there are many more horses at risk. 

Anwar admitted that the death of horses was a serious matter and must be dealt with efficiently. He said this disease had been brought into the country through trafficked wildlife, that his committee will also have to consider the problem from a commercial perspective.
