Lady Gaga’s two abducted French bulldogs – Koji and Gustav – have been recovered and returned safely. A woman, who is reported to be ‘not involved’ in the kidnapping, handed in the dogs at Olympic Community Police Station.
The dogs were abducted by two masked men who attacked the dog-walker Ryan Fischer with a gunshot.
At the time of the incident, Lady Gaga was busy shooting for her film in Rome, Italy.
The CCTV camera footage showed that Fischer was intercepted by a White Nissan Altima and two men took away two dogs, while one dog managed to escape the crime scene.
Fischer tried all that he could to prevent the abduction, but all efforts went in vain. Fisher was shot four times and was critically injured. He was later admitted to the hospital.
The neighbors heard the gunfire and called the police. When the police and emergency personnel arrived at the scene, they found that the dog-walker was seriously injured.
These dogs have been with Gaga for many years and have become an integral part of her life. This is why she announced a $500,000 reward for finding her dogs.
The security cameras of the vicinity where the incident took place, captured the precise moment when the dog-walker was intervened by the two-armed men, who quickly got out of a car and snatched the two pets.
The LAPD is investigating the matter.
In the United States, cases of dog kidnapping are fairly common. The average price of a French bulldog ranges from $3,000 and $5,000.
