Around 1,000 "trans-species" gathered in Potzdamer Platz railway station

Hundreds of people who identify as dogs have gathered in Berlin, Germany, prompting calls for “animal control” to break up the crowd.

Around 1,000 “trans-species” activists met up at the Berlin Potsdamer Platz railway station, where they communicated by barking at one another.

Footage of the meet-up quickly went viral on social media, which depicts the ‘dogs’ posing for a group photo outside the station.

Members of the group state that they do not identify as human beings, but instead as animals, creatures or mythical beings.

Critics online mocked the ‘dogs’ online, with some offering to put the herd’s “canine instincts” to the test: “Just abandon them in the Siberian tundra and let them survive with their canine instincts.”

One said: “I don’t see anyone smelling the tail of others.”

Another commented: “Call animal control and give them their rabies doses.”

And another remarked: “But if they identify as dogs, why do they put on masks?”


Dog impersonators have become rife over the years, with among the best known being a Toco – a Japanese man who identifies as a Collie dog.

Toco went viral last year after his life size dog costume was posted online.

The hyper realistic suit cost an eye-watering two million Yen (£12,480).

His YouTube channel has over 52,000 subscribers. In some of his videos he is taken out for walks and attempts tricks.

The ‘dog’ said he dreamed of meeting with other canine-identifying folk.

“I think it would be great if something like this existed,” said Toco to The New York Post.

“I would like to meet them,” Toco said.

The Japanese man identifies as a “therian” which is someone who identifies as a creature other than human.

Experts have called for a differentiation between therians and “furries”, who are individuals who enjoy cosplaying in animal suits.
