On Friday, June 27, 2014, police in Negara, West Bali arrested men in the act of poisoning and steeling dogs for sale to dog meat shops.

Now in police custody are Gusti Komang Widiantara (18) and Putu Astina (30) both from Banjar Tengah, Negara.

The men were arrested in the act of stealing two dogs owned by Nyoman Reti (48). The men poisoned the dogs before trying to escape with the animal’s carcasses.

The two murderous dog thieve told police they were ordered to steal dogs by Ketut Suwandra (48), also of Negara.

Police say Suwandra was also the party that ordered two men caught stealing dogs in April. (See related article).

Tu As told police he has only recently started to steal dogs, working in the past capturing monitor lizard for sale.

He was paid Rp. 50,000 for each dog delivered to Suwandra who used the dogs at his own RW restaurant selling dog meat. If he sold the animals on to other shops he would charge Rp. 80,000 – Rp. 100,000 per animal.

Suwandra purchased the potash used to poison the dogs from a supplier in Gilimanuk.
