Dog-Identifying People Gather in Berlin
Written by Ella Melake on September 20, 2023
A pack of ‘dog-identifying’ people caused bystanders to alert animal control after a video of their Berlin meet-up went viral.
About 1,000 people who prefer to be recognized as not humans, but canines, organized a gathering at the Berlin Potsamer Platz railroad station in Germany, communicating only by howling or barking at one another.
Critics jeered at the trans-species folk online, some offering to put the herd’s “canine instincts” to the test.
The unorthodox canine convention follows the viral sensation of Toco the human collie — a man located in Japan who is fulfilling his life-long dream of becoming a pooch after purchasing a $14,000 hyperrealistic suit.
