Police have appealed to the public for help in identifying a man who was knocked over by a car after appearing on a busy road in just his socks and pretending to be a dog.
The semi-naked man was taken to hospital in Brno, a city in the Czech Republic, after being hit by a driver who had not seen him on all fours dodging in and around the moving traffic at night time.
Eye witness Vaclav Dubsky told local TV: "The man ran out of a forest on all fours, wearing only socks.
"He was growling and barking, and making out as if he was going to try and bite the car tyres. He even lifted his leg to wee on one car as it pulled to a stop, and barked at the owner when he got out of the car to complain."
Police spokesman Pavel Svab said: "When police arrived after complaints about a traffic disturbance he had already been hit by a car and run over. He was conscious but uncommunicative other than the fact he was whimpering, and he hasn’t spoken since."
Police said the man, who is now in an artificial coma in hospital, had no ID on him as he was wearing only socks. They have now asked anyone recognising him from these pictures to get in touch.
