Barking up the Wrong Dog

BERLIN--A German used recorded barking to provoke a neighbour's dog to respond so he could report the animal for disturbing the peace, police say.

"The man evidently didn't like the dog," a police spokesperson. said this week. After the man complained to police about the German shepherd, the neighbour found a speaker hidden in his hedge attached to a cable leading to the man's house. He alerted police, who found the system was rigged to play dog barks and sounds of tongue clicks meant to attract canines.

"The whole story is so ludicrous, we really can't imagine what he thought he would achieve," the spokesperson said.

"There's no way the man would have had his dog taken away just because it barked sometimes."
