Lady Gaga’s dogs may have been stolen for ‘ransom’ as FBI investigates

FBI officials have launched an investigation into Lady Gaga's bulldogs being kidnapped.

The cops, specialised in ransom and kidnapping cases, are working with Los Angeles Police Department detectives, The Sun reports.

They are also reportedly investigating whether the dognapping was politically-motivated, as the star sang at President Joe Biden's inauguration.

"Lady Gaga is high profile of course but she sang at President Biden's inauguration which takes this case to another level," one source told the paper.

"The FBI wants to know exactly what motivated this incident."

An FBI spokesperson told The Sun that the LAPD are leading the investigation.

Lady Gaga's bulldogs may have been "stolen for ransom" as the star offered a $500,000 reward (£367,000).

Her walker was shot once while walking with the pooches on Wednesday night, officials confirmed.

Ryan Fischer, 30, was out with the dogs, Koji, Miss Asia and Gustavo, at around 10pm when the shocking incident took place.

Reports initially said he was shot four times, but cops said he suffered one gunshot wound outside his West Hollywood home on Sierra Bonita.

Both Koji and Gustavo were stolen, but Miss Asia managed to get away and was later recovered by police.

Miss Asia was then picked up by one of Gaga's bodyguards.

Neighbour, Buck Angel, called 911 to report the dognapping and told the paper it "can't be down to chance."

He claimed the area where the incident happened has "no witnesses that live there" and has "been empty for five years."

He added: "They had to have chosen that spot to carry out the attack, and those dogs were targeted for ransom, it had to be.

"They must have wanted to blackmail Lady Gaga for money."

Gaga has offered $500,000 for the return of her beloved pets, with "no questions asked," reports TMZ.

The outlet reported that anyone who has the dogs should email [email protected] to claim the reward.

When police arrived at the scene, they reportedly found a dogwalker conscious but barely breathing. 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 shocking attack, telling the New York Post: ”We’re just sick over it, it’s really horrible.

”It’s like someone took one of your kids.”

He added: ”Our whole family is upset and praying Koji and Gustavo are not harmed. Shooting someone in order to steal dogs is wrong,” as he begged the public to ”help catch these creeps”.
