Turkey: New penalty fines for dog's mutilation (ear crop and tail dock)

Turkey's Ministry of Forestry and Water Works has set new penalty fines some animal offences. Among the new rules, removing organs and cutting off parts of animals without medical necessity will be fined 600€. This is outlawing the common practice of ear cropping and tail docking of dogs (often hunting dogs). A lot of EU Countries are still allowing such a practice.
