ISTANBUL — A draftbill approved by a subcommittee in the Turkish Parliament looks set to bring a series of changes to regulations overseeing pet ownership and animal rights.
The law, which is expected to be passed soon, would require that pet owners obtain a license for animal care.
Owners will be responsible for the good care of animals including shelter, feeding and health and will be fined if they fail to prevent environmental pollution which might harm other animals or people.
Another major item in the bill is a ban on the sale of cats and dogs in pet shops.
Pet shops will only be allowed to sell fish and birds. Dogs and cats will only be sold at breeding farms.
Torturing of animals will be punishable with a fine of TL 2,000 and owners of aggressive canine species will be fined if they walk them without leash or covers on their mouths.
