The dogs that are fed every day in the village by Mr A have been disappearing. He has been concerned for three or four days by their non-appearance at feeding time.
Last night he did some investigating. He made some phone calls and he talked to the men in the teahouse. He now has allies amongst the teahouse men. They see him feed the dogs and his interaction with them and their mentality is slowly starting to change.
Do you remember this lovely kangal? Mr A has become particularly fond of him. We gave him flea and worm treatments and put a collar on him. He was fed every day and was happy. He posed no threat to anyone.
He is amongst those dogs who have disappeared in recent days. Mr A has now found out that he, and another labrador-type dog, were found dead and dumped in the rubbish bins when the refuse collectors came to empty them....clearly poisoned.
We are distraught and angry beyond belief. Someone in this village is killing these dogs and we are determined to find out who. The teahouse men have promised Mr A that they will find out what they can. In the meantime, Mr A will be making more phone calls today to the Belediye, and if necessary the Governor of the Province. All this has been done before, and I won't hold my breath that we will get anywhere...but we have to try.
Sometimes I just want to run away from this place. Mr heart is breaking for these innocent animals. When will this end?
