KONYA – Anadolu Agency
A man has shot a stray dog trapped in a wire fenced place with his rifle in the Central Anatolian province of Konya after the dog allegedly killed his bird, according to surveillance camera footage.
The man, who has not yet been identified, can be seen in the footage throwing the dog from a wall and then putting the injured dog in the trunk of his car after chasing and shooting it in an industrial zone in Konya.
Police have launched an operation to identify and detain the man.
Gonca Cansoy, the head of a local animal rights group, told state-run Anadolu Agency on Oct. 12 that they went to the scene after receiving a notice.
“The man who shot the dog told others that he did so because the dog ate his bird,” Cansoy said.
