Konya Metropolitan Municipality helps animals in Manavgat district of Antalya amid wildfires

Konya Metropolitan Municipality helps animals in Manavgat district of Antalya amid wildfires

Turkey has been battling massive forest fires for the sixth day.

Blazes that broke out on July 28 have killed at least eight people, besides vast environmental and material damage.

It is unclear how many animals have died, but the Konya Metropolitan Municipality is playing its part to look after those who have survived.

A full-fledged veterinary ambulance named Canbulan by the local government is offering emergency responses to injured animals in Antalya’s Manavgat district.

“Canbulan continues its emergency response and support activities for pets, wild animals, stray animals, and farm animals injured in areas hit by wildfires. It has medicines, medical supplies, and devices needed for the first aid of animals,” the municipality said in a statement on Monday.
