Animal lovers in Turkey feed street animals amid COVID-19 lockdown

Animal lovers in Turkey feed street animals amid COVID-19 lockdown

Amid a strict national lockdown in Turkey, animal lovers across the country are trying their best to make sure the street animals are properly fed.

People in many provinces have made contributions. Animal lovers in northwestern Edirne, where coronavirus cases are high, got special permission from the governorate to feed local animals.

Edirne locals also visited the Cavalry (NATO) bridge, which sits on the Meriç (Maritsa) river and is populated with stray dogs, to feed them.

“We are trying to feed these animals during such trying times. The lockdown period is especially hard for animals who struggle to find food and are often left hungry,” a local animal lover, Mürvet Taşvur, said.

“These dogs also need to be vaccinated against parasites. We can easily say that the pandemic has hit animals as much as it has humans,” she added.

Meanwhile, volunteers led by the Bursa Metropolitan Municipality have also intensified their efforts to feed animals.
