Animal cruelty in Alanya, Turkey

edited July 2011 in - Turkey
?t has been discovered that several hotels in the Alanya area are 'entertaining' tourists with captive chimpanzees.

These poor animals appear to be drugged and forced through various means to perform.

Apparently people complaining to the management of the hotels have been intimidated.

As these ch?mpanzees are almost definitely illegally smuggled into the country apart from concerns about their welfare there ?s a health risk involved.

WSPA are aware and have aontacted the Turkish authorities but as yet have had no response.

There is a group here im Antalya w?th the aim of supporting WSPA. Can ? ask if anyone witnesses this to contact the local Zabita. Also please write to your consul ?n Turkey demanding this be investigated and stopped.

Thank you
