    Default Vending machine feeds stray dogs in Istanbul

    it's pretty cool, I dunno if you read about this, but maybe it should be implemented other places aswell

    This Vending Machine Takes Bottles And Gives Food To Stray Dogs In Exchange | Bored Panda

    The machine works because the profit from the recycled bottles covers the cost of the dog food that the machine dispenses. Istanbul is known for its high number of stray dogs – some estimates say that there are as many as 150,000. Some locals love having the dogs around, who have adjusted so well to city life that they stop at traffic lights and walkways, but others want to get rid of them because of their aggression and their role as disease vectors.

    That is pretty cool, can we get some for the homeless as well?

    And lets not forget the cats. And local MPs.

    But it doesn't have to be dog.

    I should be so lucky that they would pay attention.
