Kassel (dpa / lhe) – A barking dog drove two burglars out of a clubhouse in Kassel. The attentive animal heard unknown noises from the building during a nightly walk with its master on Thursday night and struck hard, as the police in Kassel announced.

Startled by the barking, the burglars immediately ran away – without making any booty. They had previously broken open a door of the clubhouse and ransacked the rooms. The dog’s owner called the police.
