    TMZ have posted CCTV footage of the attack. I couldn't finish listening to that, poor guy.

    ^^ I couldn't finish it either. Thankfully it sounds like someone called for help right away.

    Because of course, you sell the footage to TMZ instead of giving it to the police.

    No shade on you Sarzy just these awful people.

    Yeah, it's very weird. I've heard of dogs being stolen from back yards but not shooting someone for them. Definitely gotta wonder if these people knew who the owner was and planned to hold them for ransom. They're certainly worth more money now than they were on the french bulldog black market.

    i've never heard of shooting for a dog.

    i do know of dogs that were stolen while they were tied up outside of a store for a few minutes, just while the owner was inside buying something quick.

    i always thought of dog walking as a low risk gig. poor guy.

    I couldn't finish either. Awful. I don't understand how someone could do this. I don't understand how anyone can shoot or hurt anyone, period -- but for a dog? Even Gaga's? People are heinous.

    This is horrible of course, but what other reason would this guy get shot for?
    If they were targeting him for something completely unrelated - there would be no apparent reason to take the dogs that I can see.

    They've been found safe! Happy to hear that the guy who was shot is recovering well too.


    Lady Gaga's two stolen French bulldogs have been found safe and handed in to police, according to officials.

    The two dogs, stolen in an armed robbery, have been "reunited" with the singer's representatives, police said.

    Lady Gaga's dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot by two men who abducted the dogs in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on Wednesday.

    He is in hospital and his family said on Friday that he was expected to make a full recovery.

    Details of how the dogs were recovered are unclear. The Associated Press said a woman had brought them to the Olympic Community Police Station in LA and the singer's representatives had confirmed they were hers. The woman appeared to be "uninvolved and unassociated" with the robbery, a police spokesman said.

    Lady Gaga had offered $500,000 (£359,000) for their safe return but it is not clear if the reward has been claimed.

    No mention of how the dog walker was doing or did he die?

    I hate how on a lot of other sites, the injured HUMAN is more or less an afterthought in the tale of 2 DOGS who were abducted, because they belong to Gaga, which makes them - famous - or something. The dog sitter is an employer of Gaga, which appearantly makes him disposable. Why are people like this?

    Fun fact, the criminals had no idea about the Gaga connection. That's why when they found out, they dumped the dogs.

    ^ People get really soppy when animals are involved. I know I do too but obviously the main focus should be on the guy who got shot. He did seem like an afterthought in the media stories.

    Hmm, so this lady gets the reward.
    I have to wonder if she doesn't somehow know these thieves and they figured that getting half a million dollars with the reward money would be safer than trying to collect a ransom.

    Thankfully the dog walker guy is ok. I just can't get over how they were willing to shoot him for it. And the coordination of a driver, and two men--one per dog--is oddly organized for a dog-napping.
    Just still so odd to me, the whole thing.
