An older picture of Paris kissing a sleeping pooch
Update: This story is not true and all of Paris’ accessory animals are said to be alive and well.
Paris Hilton lost two out of at least 17 dogs, most of them chihuahuas, from the virtual menagerie at her house. She also owns a goat, cats, two ferrets, a chinchilla and probably some other exotic pets, not all of them legal in California. It’s certainly not legal to have more than three dogs in LA without a breeder’s permit, and the Department of Animal Services visited her home at one point, but nothing much came of it.
Paris was devastated to discover that two of her more than a dozen dogs were attacked and killed by a wild coyote last night:
While Paris Hilton usually doesn’t get much sympathy from us, we’ve found that a coyote killed two of her dogs last night. A source tells X17 that Paris is “devastated” and has been crying non-stop. We’re shocked and sending our love to Paris — even though we’re wondering why the dogs were left outside all night.
The NY Daily News reminds us that wild animal attacks on pets are sadly common in LA and that Halle Berry and Demi Moore are among the dog owners who have lost pets in attacks.
Paris is not the most responsible pet owner and she should probably re-think the sheer number of dogs, cats, and various other animals she keeps. She does have help for her animals and seems to genuinely love them. That’s sad that two of her dogs were killed and our hearts go out to the defenseless little dogs, if not to Paris.
