I have seen several questions regarding the street animals in Dalyan and I would just like to say that we have been coming to Dalyan for 8 years now and have never seen any really aggressive animal. The authorities are meant by law to provide water and food for the street animals but does not do so in case it offends tourists. This only aggravates the situation with hungry animals begging for food. If you are concerned about the plight of these animals you can help by putting down some dried food and water for them and if you wish to make a donation, whether it's cash, food, medication etc. make sure it gets to Colin or Mebrure who do such good work at the Dog Shelter against tremendous odds. If anyone is afraid of dogs or cats just avoid eye contact and carry a small water pistol.
