A 39-year-old man stabbed his own dog to death after a fight with his wife on New Year's Eve, police reported Sunday.

The couple brought their seven-year-old Alsation with them when they visited another married couple in the western German town of Siegen to celebrate the New Year.

In the course of the evening, a row erupted between the 39-year-old man and his 40-year-old wife, during which she said she wanted to end their marriage.

According to police, the man then stormed out and stabbed the dog to death outside. He then damaged the host's car and drove away, though it is not known where.
