Thai Police Gun Dog

The Daily Mail (UK) published a photo purportedly of an unarmed Thai policeman with a police dog that is packing a Glock pistol in a holster strapped to its side.

I am very skeptical. It makes no sense that the officer would be unarmed but his dog has a pistol. I think this was either a joke or they were trying to entrap criminals into stealing what is probably a cheap airsoft Glock clone.

Many thanks to Jay for the tip.

    Since the dog has such a derp expression I hope you’re right about it being an airsoft.

    The Daily Mail is known to be a terrible rag, so whatever they print should be read with a lot of scepticism.

    Probably just airsoft to make the dog look more like a cop.

    Maybe it’s like Andy Griffith where the dog is more trustworthy and the human is Barney Fife…
