FBI officials have launched an invest*gat-ion into Lady Gaga’s bulldogs being kidnapped. The c*ps, specialised in rans*m and ki-dnapp-ing cas-es, are working with Los Angeles Police Department detectives, The Sun reports. They are also report-edly invest-igat*ng whether the dognapp-ing was politically-motivated, as the star sang at President Joe Biden’s ina-ugurat*on.
“Lady Gaga is high profile of course but she sang at President Biden’s inaugurat-ion which takes this case to another level,” one source told the paper. “The FBI wants to know exactly what motivated this !ncid-ent.”
An FBI sp*kesperson told The Sun that the LAPD are leading the investiga-tion.
Lady Gaga’s bulldogs may have been “st*len for rans*m” as the star offered a $500,000 reward (£367,000).
Her walker was sh*t once while walking with the po-oches on Wednesday night, officials confirmed. Ryan Fischer, 30, was out with the dogs, Koji, Miss Asia and Gustavo, at around 10pm when the sho-ck*ng inc*dent took place.
Reports initially said he was sh*t four times, but co-ps said he suff*red one gunsh*t wound outside his West Hollywood home on Sierra Bonita.
Both Koji and Gustavo were st*len, but Miss Asia managed to get away and was later recovered by police.
Miss Asia was then pick-ed up by one of Gaga’s bodyguards. Neighbour, Buck Angel, called 911 to report the dognapp!ng and told the paper it “can’t be down to chance.”
He cla*med the area where the incident happened has “no witne-sses that live there” and has “been empty for five years.” He added: “They had to have chosen that spot to carry out the att**k, and those dogs were target-ed for rans*m, it had to be.
“They must have wanted to bla-ckma-il Lady Gaga for money.” Gaga has offered $500,000 for the return of her belov-ed pets, with “no questions asked,” reports TMZ.
The outlet reported that anyone who has the dogs should email kojiandgustavo @ gmail.com to cla*m the reward.
When police arrived at the scene, they reportedly found a dogwalker conscious but barely bre-athing. They was transported to hospital in a ‘grave’ condition, officials said.
Last night, Fischer was described as being in a “serious” condition but doctors said he was “recovering well”.
The singer’s dad has spoken out about the sho-ck*ng att**k, telling the New York Post: ”We’re just s!ck over it, it’s really horr!ble. ”It’s like someone took one of your kids.”
He added: ”Our whole family is upset and praying Koji and Gustavo are not h*rmed. Sh**ting someone in order to steal dogs is wro-ng,” as he begged the public to ”help catch these cr**ps”.
