Just when we thought 2021 was going to be a better year than 2020, last night it was reported that two of Lady Gaga’s three French Bulldogs, Koji and Gustav, were stolen from Lady Gaga’s dog walker, who was shot, in L.A.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department the incident happened before 10:00 p.m. last night when a report came in that a man was shot during a robbery just before being transported to the hospital. It was later revealed the man shot was Lady Gaga’s dog walker. Two of the three dogs were stolen while the other ran off but was later recovered.
Video footage was recovered by a neighbor’s camera which had caught the entire scene on tape. The surveillance video shows a white sedan pull up next to the dog walker, Ryan Fischer. Two men step out of the vehicle and instruct Fischer to “give it up.” Fischer is then attacked by the two men, with some resistance. Then, gunshots are heard and a bullet hits Fischer in the chest. The dogs can be heard yelping as the two thieves shove them into the back seat.
After the attack happened, Lady Gaga issued a reward of $500,000 for the return of her two dogs, no questions asked. Lady Gaga has yet to post anything on social media other than the reward, though the singer’s father has come forward and said to CNN, “we are upset about [the dog walker]. It’s very appalling someone would shoot somebody to steal some dogs. Hopefully, they’ll be caught so we can get the dogs back safely.”
As of today according to LAPD officer Mike Lopez, Ryan Fischer, the dog walker, is in stable condition at the hospital.
