The Watchdog Thailand (WDT) and neighbours on Friday filed a complaint with police against a Bangkok woman for alleged cruelty against some 50 dogs.
Chonchanok Tungtaengsiri of WDT and six neighbours filed a complaint with Huay Kwang police against Saengrawee Kanjairungroj, 69.
Chonchanok and the neighbours alleged that Saengrawee kept some 50 dogs in miserable conditions in small cages in her two-storey townhouse without any exercise.
She later took them away after being criticised by her neighbours.
They complained of a bad smell from the house.
Police promised to obtain a warrant to search the house.
