Hawk Attacks Playboy Model Shanna Moakler's Dogs - 9

Playboy model and former Miss USA, Shanna Moakler declared war -- a Twitter rank at least -- against the apex predators of the sky last week after a hawk gouged the eye of one of her “fur babies” and flew off with another. Moakler, who has two children with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, told Hollyscoop, “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. It was like out of a movie.”

The movie in question must have been "R" rated as Moakler’s Monday tweet dropped the F-bomb. “A 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 f**n kill things.” Wednesday’s tweet, although profanity free, swore vengeance. “Not gonna lie, feel like hunting hawks today… don’t feel bad about it either.”

Pretty sure that’s illegal in Calabasas, California Ms. Moakler. Still, I feel your pain.

Despite Moakler’s anger she did manage to give the readers of Hollyscoop deep thoughts to reflect on, “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.”

Rest assured I’ll be following this story closely as I can’t wait to hear the outcome of that fur baby’s eye. Comment below!

Designer dogs do make for a nice light snack for hungry coyotes and hawks. That said, when you love your dog, whatever its breed , it makes for a tough loss. Still, you have to admire any wild creatures that are able to adapt to living in human environments

I saw an owl take a neighbor's cat as a boy.... and a hawk take a fat squirrel off of a bird feeder....birds of prey are just that....people have to have better awareness if they are going to own pets like miniature dogs.

Typical - want to live out in nature but not the animals that are there. Toy dogs are for skyscrapers and planned communities, if you live in wilderness areas you'd best get a real dog or expect the natives to make a lunch of them.

Birds of Pray attack to eat. They don't have a small book inside their feathers, that states don't kill pet dogs, hamsters, rabbits or cats.
The same thing happen to the property owner of my hunting lease. A large Red Tail Hawk pounce on his small dog. The farmer plowing the field witness the attack. The farmer ran over to the screaming dog and the hawk flew away. That dog lived but also lost an eye and walked with a limp.

Gayne, I strongly urge you to conduct a personal, in-depth interview and offer the poor girl whatever comfort you can to alleviate her despair. Demonstrate that the outdoor community sympathizes with her about the predators.

This is great for hunters, someone who probably doesn't spend much time in the pro-hunting camp who says “Not gonna lie, feel like hunting hawks today… don’t feel bad about it either.”

Now that she understands how ranchers feel about lost livestock to predation she should be a full supporter of wolf hunting, after all wolves are killing my favorite animal in the world, elk in case you didn't know.

It's an impossibly long shot but maybe she can help lobby to re-open mtn lion hunting in california too. And maybe pigs will fly tommorow too.

Well it is too bad. Killing hawks is illegal under the Federal Migratory Bird Act anyway. Lots of cats get taken by hawks and eagles actually. She may still be an idiot though.
