KINDNESS TO ANIMALS. NO CAMEL FIGHTS IN TURKEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933
KINDNESS TO ANIMALS. NO CAMEL FIGrHTS IN TURKEY. IÈ is considered probable that before long some of the more practical sug- gestions put forward for- the protec- tion of animals in Turkey will be em- bodied in penal legislation. ' Public opinion has been changing rapidly on this subject. Camel fighting, for in- stance, has been stopped, and yarious places in the province have put an end to cock fighting. Tlie latter sport has been very popular in Anatolia from time immemorial. Attention has also been drawn to the wilful destruction of wild birds, and it has been pointed out that the martin will soon disappear unless measures are taken against the boys who take the eggs.
