Those Involved In Robbery Of Lady GaGa’s Dogs Have Been Charged

The singer's dog walker was shot in the incident.

Remember earlier this year when it was reported that Lady GaGa’s dogs had been kidnapped? Oh, and that her dog walker was shot whilst walking them in LA? TBH we’re still not over how insane this story is, and it seems it is now drawing to a close.

This weekend three men were charged with robbery and attempted murder over the incident. George Gascon, LA District Attorney revealed the news in a statement saying; “This was a brazen street crime that left a man seriously wounded.”

The singer set a hefty reward for whoever returned her beloved pet’s to her, no questions asked. When a woman came forward with the dogs it was later revealed that she was actually in a romantic relationship with one of the kidnappers. The plot thickens.

The incident took place in February of this year  when her dog walker, Ryan Fischer was shot while out walking her three dogs, Miss Asia, Koji, and Gustav, in West Hollywood.

He was taken to a nearby hospital where he is made a full recovery from a collapsed lung and one of her three dogs, Miss Asia escaped whilst the other two were kidnapped.

When GaGa broke her silence over the incident, she posted to Instagram; “My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago. My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness.”

She continued; “I will pay $500,000 for their safe return. Or, if you bought or found them unknowingly, the reward is the same.”

The singer also paid tribute to Ryan, her dog walker; “I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.”
