According to the New York Post, the trans-species convention attendees received tongue-lashing by netizens.
See the video below:
“I don’t see anyone smelling the tail of others,” said a netizen.
"But if they identify as dogs, why do they put on masks?"
A netizen hilariously suggested animal control officers should be brought to deal with the 'canines' and give them rabies shots.
Toco, the Human Collie
In July, Toco took his first walk in public after his transformation into a 'dog'.
In recent updates on his YouTube channel, aptly named 'I want to be an animal,' Toco showcased his remarkable transformation by frolicking on all fours in his backyard and displaying impressive tricks in exchange for treats.
With enthusiasm and dedication, he was taken for a walk on a leash, sniffing and interacting with other dogs at a nearby park.
His joy and authenticity in embracing his newfound identity were evident as he rolled around on the floor, truly embracing his inner canine spirit.
Human Collie wants a woman
Weeks after taking his first public walk on all four legs, the Japanese man-dog now wants to have a woman in his life.
Toco opened up on finding love, saying a relationship with a woman who also liked to dress up in a dog costume would suit him.
"I think it would be great if something like this existed. I would like to meet them," he said.
