Thieves reportedly shot Lady Gaga’s dogwalker multiple times on a West Hollywood street and took off with her French bulldogs.
The dogwalker, identified by multiple media outlets as Ryan Fischer, was reportedly wounded four times in the chest by one or more armed dognappers during the incident on Wednesday night, around 10 p.m.
Fischer reportedly was clinging to one of the three dogs, named Miss Asia, as EMTs at the scene rendered aid before rushing him to a local hospital. That dog is now being cared for by Gaga’s bodyguard. Fortunately, Fischer is expected to make a full recovery from his injuries. There were also reports that the dog ran away, but LAPD cops recovered her and then turned the canine over to the bodyguard.
Police have yet to determine as to whether Gaga’s celebrity status or her ownership of those particular pets had anything to do with the robbery. “Law enforcement does not know if the target was Lady Gaga’s dogs specifically. French Bulldogs are in demand and expensive, so our sources say it’s possible the gunman did not know the dogs were owned by Lady Gaga,” TMZ, which was first to report the incident, explained.

As alluded to above, French bulldogs are apparently big-ticket, avidly sought-after pets, often selling in the range of $1,500-$3,000. Some go for as much as $10,000 if they have a top-tier pedigree, according to the Daily Mail.

The understandably upset songstress, however, has offered a no-questions-asked reward of $500,000 for the return of the other two, named Gustav and Koji, and also set up an email address for reward seekers.

Parenthetically, even upscale areas of Los Angeles have experienced a serious decay in the quality of life. Random street violence, enclaves of homelessness, and related issues have convinced some to relocate to other parts of the state, if not abandon high-tax, Democrat-controlled California altogether.
The owner of a moving company described it as a mass exodus from liberal Hollywood, which has traditionally been the hub of the entertainment industry.
