Shanna Moakler - Shanna Moakler's Pup Snatched By Eagle
Former beauty queen and Playboy Playmate Shanna Moakler has been left devastated after an eagle flew off with one of her pet puppies and left another partially blind.
The 1995 Miss Usa, who was married to Blink-182 star Travis Barker, took to Twitter.com on Monday (23Apr12) to note her outrage after the attack outside her home in Calabasas, California.
She wrote, "A (sic) eagle attacked my 2 chi's today, my girl pup is at the vet, my boy is missing, between my cat and my pups, I'm about to fckn (f**king) kill things... I am so incredibly sad."
Moakler later told website HollyScoop.com, "I live in a neighbourhood 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. It was like out of a movie."
It's not the first time Moakler has lost a pet to local predators: "I have lost two animals in a month from coyotes and hawks. I even installed coyote fences."
And now she's warning her neighbours to be on the look out for predators: "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 just remember not to take things for granted as you never know when they can be gone, both people and fur babies."
