Woman accused of stealing cat’s blanket in Turkey’s west
A Turkish woman has been slammed on social media over footage in which she is seen stealing a cat’s blanket.
The video of the unidentified woman was recorded by the security camera of a veterinary clinic in the Süleyman Bey neighborhood of Turkey’s western province of Yalova.
Berna Özer, the owner of the clinic, posted the video to her social media accounts on Dec. 5, triggering an avalanche of reactions.
“What can be said to someone who steals a small blanket from a cat in such a cold weather?” Özer asked, adding that she has been taking care of the stray cats in the neighborhood by providing food, shelter and warmth in front of her clinic.
Hundreds of social media users called on authorities to identify the woman and launch a criminal investigation.
