Lady Gaga offers $500k reward after dog walker shot and pets stolen

Written by on 25/02/2021

Lady Gaga is understood to be offering a $500,000 reward for the safe return of two of her beloved dogs after her friend was shot as he was walking them.

Ryan Fischer was attacked as he walked the star’s French bulldogs Koji, Miss Asia and Gustav in West Hollywood on Wednesday evening.

Two of the dogs, Koji and Gustav, were stolen, while Miss Asia was able to get away and was later recovered.

Mr Fischer is said to be recovering while Lady Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, is understood to be offering a $500,000 (£353,000) reward to try and get her pets back.

Los Angeles Police Department said Mr Fischer was shot by a male suspect at 9.40pm local time (5.40am on Thursday in the UK). The man fled in a white vehicle, the force said.

A semi-automatic gun was used in the attack and the weapon has not yet been recovered.

Two French bulldogs were taken by the suspect, they added.

An LAPD spokesman said: “The investigation is still open as LAPD continue their search for the suspect or suspects.”

Lady Gaga was reportedly in Italy when the attack happened.
