Thanks for sharing, Desanka. He warned the Turkish tv. Then they fed them hot places and people.

We are not different from the situation of the Turkish people. A dictator. Corruption, theft, anti money laundering. The powers of the Prosecutors and judges do their worst. The task of trying to police chiefs. The Turkish nation collectively before we all get cold inside our heads. I mean madness.

A truly beautiful story. It's good to hear something positive about the treatment of animals in Turkey. It doesn't seem to happen often, but when it does, it really warms the heart.

Thank the stars there was a happy ending for these much abused and misused animals. Stop treating animals like machines which have no feelings, treat them as you would like to be treated. Thank you for the story.
