If it walks like a duck...
In Edirne, a duck named 'Beti' was about to be butchered when
some fish-sellers bought Beti and made her the market's mascot.
One of the fish-sellers, Feridun Bistiren, explained that "we met
Beti by accident. As the chicken-seller was passing by our
market, Beti stuck her head out of a sack and looked at us. So
we said 'let's by her' and we paid 30 TL. She's our mascot and
kids love her."
Fish-seller Nurhayat Eren said "We weren't willing to let Beti
be butchered so we bought her." Ahmet Kıyak, who came from
nearby Bulgaria to shop, said that upon seeing Beti he decided
to buy some fish.
