“They killed my friends,” says 52 year old Ali Uslu as he protested against the poisoning of his dogs and cats.
Every day there are reports of cats and dogs being poisoned. The latest incident happened yesterday just outside Tatlisu.
Mr Uslu lives in a one room house with a collection of cats and dogs. These are strays that he has picked up and looked after over the years. He lives off a small disability pension and by selling empty beer bottles.
He has now gone to the newspapers in an attempt to get something done.
