PAC better known as Phangan Animal Care, which has been operating since September 2001 as a non-profit nursing clinic providing veterinary care for the animals of Koh Pha-Ngan was finally attacked with a Molotov cocktail by un-known criminals.
Friday 1st August 2008 around 10 p.m. at night two unknown motorbikes approached the new PAC clinic facilities in Wok Tum area. The unidentified attacker on the first motorbike threw a brick into one of PACs’ clinic window, so the other nightly attacker on the second motorbike, which arrived a few minutes later, could finally place the Molotov cocktail right into PACs’ clinic facilities.
This finally caused a devastating fire inside PACs’ clinic facilities which destroyed most of the office and clinic equipment. Two cats were also killed during the arson attack but luckily no PAC nurses or PAC staff got injured.
The local Koh Phangan police forces were called immediately and the PAC clinic area was shut down instantly to prevent loss of evidence. Phangan local police forces are currently calling for backup from Suratthani on the mainland to secure more circumstantial evidence leading to the unknown attackers.
PAC also announced today that the clinic remains closed in the foreseeable future.
For any information regarding the identification of the unknown attackers please directly get in contact with PAC or visit PAC Phangan Animal Care website for future updates on this tragic incident.
