A mob of angry villagers in the northern province of Thanh Hoa set fire to two motorbikes that dog thieves abandoned in an effort to save their skins on Thursday morning.
Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper cited Pham Van Chuong, a police officer in Thach Dong Commune, Thach Thanh District, as saying locals had noticed four strange man riding around on a pair of motorbikes at 5:30 a.m. Bui Van Quy, a dog owner, caught the thieves red-handed electrocuting his animals with a stun gun and cried out for his neighbors' help, the paper reported. The thieves immediately fled the scene, leaving behind their vehicles and two sacks of dogs weighing nearly 100 kilograms. The angry mob set fire to their motorbikes as soon as they found them.
Dog theft has grown increasingly common in Vietnam as the animals' meat has grown equally popular. Restaurants pay between VND100,000 and VND200,000 (US$4.8-$9.6) per dog. The crimes have led to increasing instances of mob violence. A commune police chief in Thanh Hoa was hospitalized late last month after a pair of dog thieves beat him with iron bars. That same month, four dog thieves in Ho Chi Minh City killed three teenage vigilantes during a high-speed chase. The dog thieves, who later turned themselves in, confessed to electrocuting their pursuers (all riding on a single motorbike) with an improvised stun gun. The shock caused the vigilantes, who were trying to stab the fleeing thieves with knives, to crash into an electric pole. Because stolen dogs are often valued at less than VND2 million (around $100) the threshold for criminal charges the idea that thieves will only suffer an administrative fine inspires some victims to resort to mob justice.

Its not like dogs are hard to breed so is this a sign that food is becoming scare there?
Don’t forget, the president of the United States eats dog.
Yep, the dog eater in chief.
Dog meat was considered a delicacy there way back in the 60’s.
Next time, the locals should burn the dog thieves and keep the cannoli.
Street thief mentality. Why breed, which takes a bit of an investment in time and money, when you can steal from somebody else?
You need food to raise a dog.

If they spent the same amount of time doing some thing legitimate they be better off.
But that is not their mentality.
Oh, I wish I hadn't looked that up. Now I can't unknow it.

It seems dog was considered a fine meal during our Revolutionary days, at least according to the dialog in the movie The Patriot.
