Update: Lady Gaga’s Dog Walker, Ryan, Expected to Make Full Recovery – Ransom Real Possibility
After conflicting reports on Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer’s conditions TMZ is reporting that Ryan is expected to make a full recovery.
Ryan’s family said, “Ryan is receiving extraordinary care in the hospital right now and his doctors expect him to make a full recovery. We cannot possibly say enough to thank all of the first responders, nurses and doctors who have worked so tirelessly to care for Ryan.”
They also went on to thank Lady Gaga for her constant love and support towards Ryan.
Now cops are investigating if Lady Gaga’s dogs were targeted for ransom. Cops say in the video it looks like the criminals targeted Ryan and it wasn’t just a chance encounter. Cops say it was dark and encounter was short so the criminals had to have known who they were going after. Police suspect the criminals may have learned Ryan’s walking schedule.
Sadly, the dogs are not chipped.
Other sources say the FBI has gotten involved in the dognapping, with their theory being the dogs were stolen in retaliation to Gaga’s performance at President Biden’s inauguration. The agency said the dogs could be “held for ransom.”
Former FBI Agent Frank Montoya Jr slammed the star’s decision to DailyMail.com on Thursday, saying the high reward not only put the LAPD’s investigation at risk but could potentially open up a wave of criminals to steal celebrity dogs and return them for high ransoms.
