BERLIN – A dog in Germany shot by a drunken man with a gun took swift revenge by biting off the end of the man's nose, authorities said on Monday.
Police said the armed man was snooping at night in the yard of a house in Stadtlauringen in northern Bavaria when he shot the Bernese mountain dog from point-blank range.
Before collapsing, the dog leapt at the 39-year-old man and bit off the end of his nose, a local police spokesman said.
Bleeding profusely, the man called police and was taken for treatment in a nearby hospital. His motives for being in the yard were unclear, police said.
Doctors removed a bullet from the dog's shoulder and discharged it from a clinic after an operation lasting several hours.
