The individual found guilty of such crimes will face a prisonsentence from six months to four years, while caregivers found intentionallyabandoning their animal companions are subject to a fine of up to theequivalent of US$230.Additionally, police will be allowed to form animalprotection squads to respond to incidents of abuse as well as cock- anddog-fighting. In 2019, the Turkish parliament formed an Animal RightsLegislative Commission that has helped to develop the updated law.
