Please note that 19 May I visited X beach. There were two dogs sleeping there in the bushes at the bottom near the beach which I disturbed as I didn't see them. They are medium sized  'Kangal' type dogs. They seemed young.  They are buff coloured. Short haired and not shaggy haired/coated. Well built and the size of a large male labrador. These dogs had docked tails and no ears. The ears and tails had clearly been cut off.
Usually in certain 'circles' this means the dogs are used for dog fighting. I myself have not heard of this in Turkey but these 2 dogs have been harmed by human intervention and were quite aggressive I had to throw stones to keep them away and I have never ever seen such farm/shepherd dogs like this before in Turkey. After they did 'retreat' they went up the X Beach engineer path along the road towards the farm near Pink Farm.

The engineer path down to X beach is becoming eroded from rain. It is still easy to walk down but at the bottom, it is not easy at all to get to the beach as the erosion has taken away the way down to the beach. It's about a 12 foot drop to the beach. I didn't try.
