Former Playmate Shanna Moakler got a gruesome surprise the other day in her California home when one of her dogs got stolen by a hungry hawk. Her other dog was attacked and left injured.
Moakler first shared the traumatic incident on Twitter, describing how the whole thing was surreal and “out of a movie.” She later shared the details of her experience,
“I live in a neighborhood where coyotes and hawks are prevalent. We took the dogs outside to go to the bathroom and they were attacked by a hawk. My one puppy may have lost an eye, we won’t know for a couple weeks and the bird flew off with my other puppy.”
The reality television star was once married to Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, whom she has two children with. Shanna had lost another pet recently, less than a month ago, due to a coyote attack.
Shana had installed coyote fences in her home to protect her animals from further attack. Despite her precautions, Moakler could not keep her puppies safe. She took steps against the coyotes, but not the predators overhead.
Shanna cautioned pet owners to always be alert and take precautions against these types of predator attacks on small animals. She said,
“I just hope people with small dogs will start taking precautions with their pets outside and try to protect them from predators. I hope people remember not to take things for granted as you never know when they can be gone, both people and fur babies.”
Have you ever had a wild animal take off with your pet?
