|Another case of dog poisoning in Kalkan|
|Thursday, 05 July 2012|
Article updated: We are sorry to report that another street dog has been poisoned in the Kızıltaş area of Kalkan.
The dog was alive shortly after midnight, but was found dead, at around 6am this morning.
The Jandarma is investigating, however it is particularly difficult to pin down exactly who is responsible, without any witnesses.Reward offered
KTLN has spoken to a local person this morning, who wishes to remain anonymous, but who is offering a substantial reward to anyone who can provide hard evidence to the Jandarma, which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible.
We can confirm that on both occasions, the night before the poisonings occurred, the dogs had been barking late at night, so it would not be unreasonable to suspect that someone decided to take matters into their own hands, to silence the animals.
We have a great deal of sympathy for anyone who is disturbed at night by barking dogs, (we have suffered from this problem ourselves), however poisoning the dogs is not only cruel and irresponsible, it is illegal.
Below: This dog suffered an agonising death.
If anyone has information that can help the investigation, we urge you to pass details to the Jandarma.
And if you walk your dog(s) in the area, you may want to be extra vigilant, in case they come across any remaining poison.
Article update: Another dog was discovered poisoned this morning (Friday), quite close to where yesterday's poisoning took place - as indicated by the yellow mark on the above map. The Jandarma attended - see photo below.
And on Saturday morning, two more dogs were found on Istiklal Caddesi - one close to the red spot on our map, and another further along the same road.
