The kidnapping of Lady Gaga's two French bulldogs has left the Internet shook. The pop star had recently performed at President Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20, 2021, which has now led the FBI to look at it from a political angle.

According to recent reports, investigators are exploring the possibility that the dognapping of Lady Gaga's bulldogs was actually politically motivated since she sang at Biden's inauguration last month.

According to a recent report carried by The Sun, FBI agents specializing in kidnapping and ransom cases, are working with the Los Angeles Police Department to find out "exactly what motivated this incident". A source familiar with the incident revealed to the publication, "Lady Gaga is high profile of course but she sang at President Biden's inauguration which takes this case to another level."

"The FBI wants to know exactly what motivated this incident," the source added to the publication.

An FBI spokesperson, when speaking to the paper, did not comment directly but said, "While the Bureau provides resources if/where requested to our local partners, I would refer you to LAPD for comment as they are leading this investigation."

On the night of February 24, 2021, two Black men shot Lady Gaga's dog walker Ryan Fischer, in the chest four times, stealing the singer’s two French bulldogs. According to reports, investigators are working on the assumption that the attack was a straightforward armed robbery. Since French Bulldogs and their breeds are on an average sold for anything between $2,000 to $10,000. At the same time, another theory is that the dogs could have been "stolen for ransom" as the star has now announced a $500,000 reward "no questions asked", according to TMZ.

According to reports, 30-year-old Fischer was attacked just before 10 pm outside his home on West Hollywood's Sierra Bonita Avenue as he walked Gaga's dogs Koji, Miss Asia and Gustav. Fischer was shot in the chest but, according to reports, is expected to survive. Police say he was conscious and communicative when they arrived on the scene.

Lady Gaga's dad Joe Germanotta made a public appeal on Thursday asking for help in finding the dogs. "Our whole family is upset and praying Koji and Gustavo are not harmed," Germanotta told Fox News. "Help us catch these creeps. Horrible people in LA," Germanotta added. "Shooting someone in order to steal dogs is wrong."

Twitter has mixed feelings about the FBI being involved. "Your tax dollars at work. WTF, can she not afford a PI?" one tweeted. "Wow, I'm calling BS how is it the FBI gets involved in a shooting and theft of a dog. Neither of which is Federal," another user concurred. 





At the same time, is the political angle a viable one to begin with? A user says, "I still think it's a bit ridiculous, but the dog-walker was literally shot over these dogs. I really doubt political motivation, but this is a much more serious crime than it sounded like from the headline," to which another user responded. "The FBI though? I need an explanation as to how dog-napping Lady Gaga's dogs constitutes a federal matter. She sings for Biden now she has the FEDs to track down her dog nappers. Don't be surprised if this becomes some kind of "gate" in the near future."
