Help change the Turkish law that makes animal abuse an excuse not a crime.

Recently 5 university students from Izmir, Turkey first tried to attack an old cat with their dog and killed the cat by hitting him in the head with their feet. Eventually they were taken by the police and they were released with no actual punishment just a fine which is 300 TL (210 $)

Their brutal actions are recorded by the security camera and the link to the video is here: http://www.posta.com.tr/video?VideoID=3330

The law is extremely insufficient for the cruelty towards animals in Turkey. There is no punishment for  murdering or torturing animals so the law must change in order to keep these innocent creatures safe.
