Mass Poisioning in Alanya/TURKEY sign now

We, the undersigned, call upon the Mayor of Antalya, Turkey, Mr. Alaattin CAKIR; to stop the mass poisoning and have stray dogs and cats in Alanya, sterilized, registered and released instead of homed in shelters or killed.







As feared, the only solution that the Alanya government has found to deal with the problem of stray animals was to mass poison.. Government representatives deny this and profess shock at such a 'rumor'. However, owned and stray animals in Alanya, as elsewhere in Turkey, are poisoned en masse every year already. It is common practice to throw poison in the quiet of the night and remove the bodies before dawn. Documented witness reports, as well as laboratory reports of this practice are abundant and have even been shown on Turkish television.











Many animal welfare societies have been implementing a full-scale neutering program of all dogs and cats. But the Alanya Municipality, among others, is apparently proposing that this money be spent on killing. High-volume killing does not work and never will. Nature does not tolerate a void and will fill it with something else, rats for instance. Additionally, a much larger food territory will be available for the remaining strays, which means larger litters and healthier animals. The stray population will have replaced itself in a couple of years. The only viable, and the cheapest, solution is a full-scale spay and neuter program, combined with education and improved rubbish management.











Please support this campaign by adding your signature to the petition. Give the strays of Alanya a chance to survive!











Thank you.
