A dog is begging at the dining table for a slice of pizza.
Suddenly the situation escalates.
The animal bites a toe off a man after his attack.
Berlin - An attack on a dog backfired a 28-year-old.
A situation at the dinner table in an apartment in Berlin has escalated to such an extent that the man now has one body part less.
The whole thing happened on December 27th, 2021.
As reported by the Berliner Zeitung, among other things, police officers and an emergency doctor were suddenly on their way to Ernst-Bloch-Strasse in the Berlin district of Hellersdorf at around 11:30 p.m.
Five guests are said to have eaten pizza together there shortly beforehand.
A dog also tried to get something by begging.
One guest felt disturbed by the dog while eating pizza, "because he was probably staring at his plate all the time," as the Berliner Zeitung quoted a police spokeswoman.

The man then pushed the dog away with his hand.
"The dog must have been frightened and snatched at the man." The result was a bite on the cheek.
But the situation continued to rock.
The 28-year-old first disappeared in the bathroom to take care of his wound.
When he was about to return to the dining table, he ran into the dog again.
This time the man apparently wanted to kick the dog - but the dog's reaction followed immediately.
Berlin: Staffordshire Bull Terrier bites off man's toe - part of the body has disappeared
"The dog bit the man's foot and severed a toe," said the police spokeswoman in Berlin to the Berliner Zeitung.
The toe was not found afterwards, the dog had apparently swallowed the body part of the human opponent.
While the emergency doctor was taking care of the injured 26-year-old, the dog was first calmed down by service dog handlers and then handed over to the animal emergency service.
In the course of the first investigation, none of those present wanted to identify themselves as the owner of the dog.
The age and breed of the dog were initially unknown.
It was only later that the Bild newspaper reported that the hosts had taken care of the Staffordshire bull terrier mix Buma from friends.
But that was illegal because the seven-year-old animal is a so-called "list dog".
In Berlin only owners of a dog driving license and the registered owners are allowed to keep the dog.
The dog Buma shouldn't have stayed with the acquaintances.
The holder now faces criminal consequences.
