In Turkey, animals without a owner will be fed by the authorities during the pandemic. Order from Turkey's interior ministry
Animals without a owner in Turkey will not die of hunger as long as the world is isolated in houses, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Ankara government has decided, the BBC writes, to provide local authorities with food, water and sanitation for hundreds of thousands of wild cats and dogs across the country.
The Interior Minustry has issued a directive by which local councils must, during the coronavirus pandemic, to buy food for the animals without a owner and to bring food and water everywhere where cats and stray dogs are. City halls must provide food and shelter for animals.
Suleyman Soylu also decided that the state employees should take care of the disinfection of the shelters and the improvised huts. Normally, the animals without a shelter in Turkey are fed by activists and volunteers, but they are now isolated at homes because of the epidemic.
In Istanbul, the largest city in Turkey alone, there are 162,970 cats without a owner and 128,900 lonely dogs. The directive has been praised in the media and on social networks.
And on April 5, local authorities in the Bayrampasa district posted pictures on the official Twitter page of employees feeding the animals on the street.
And Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul also supports the initiative. Also in April, he posted a photo of him with a dog and a message for all animal lovers.

"Broken" cats are, perhaps, all cats from time to time, and if you have had a cat, you will probably agree with that. Sometimes cats assume strange postures, try to summon a feline demon and just do their best to make their owner ask: "What's wrong with my cat ?!" Next, you will find funny photos of such cats with an error in the program, which flatly refuse to "work correctly".
