Alleged Ellen Dognapper Files Police Report

10/17/2007 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Marina Baktis, the dog rescue woman at the center of the Ellen DeGeneres scandal, filed a police report yesterday because she is being harassed for her role in the ordeal.
View the docs
Baktis, along with business partner Vanessa Chekroun, runs the Mutts and Moms agency from which Ellen DeGeneres adopted her dog. Ellen then was unable to keep the dog, so she gave it to her hairdresser Cheryl's family, which includes her 12-year-old daughter Ruby. Baktis told "Access Hollywood" yesterday that they've begun receiving death threats. "My life is being threatened, this is horrible. I rescue dogs. I can't believe this."

Baktis filed the report with the Pasadena Police Department last night.

Why does Ellen think she is above honoring a contract? Ellen is wrong, wrong, wrong.

Ellen is more upset than the little girl. My advice to anyone is never sign a contract that does not give you rights over something that you own.

She deserves her death threats! Whats wrong with the her!?! That dog had a loving home. The kids who were are 11 and 14 deserve to have a puppy! Most kids that age are responsible enough to babysit children! So why arent they responsible enough to have a dog?

Shelters put down 1000's of dogs and this one found a happy home. Theres no excuse to take that dog back. If i knew the address to the shelter i'd send them a death threat too! LOL!

Animal shelter ppl are nuts THEY are the reason that animals are killed. I hope their shelter closes down and they go out of business. GO ELLEN My next dog will be bought from a breeder.

Holy crap - what is wrong with some of you people. First, Ellen is a comedienne, not an actress so crying on her show isn't going to win her an Oscar. 2nd, what the hell does being a lesbian have to do with being a pet owner? Third, Ellen admitted, REPEATEDLY that she'd screwed up, that she was sorry, that she made a mistake, blah blah blah but JUST wanted the dog returned. And this contract??? Oh for crap's sake, this is a dog adoption, not a child. This wacko Baktis is trying to garner publicity and it back fired. She's the one trying to strong arm Ellen. Get over yourselves.

There is blame to go all around.

Ellen admitted she was wrong. But the rescue is also being heartless even if they have "rules" to follow.

Look for the rescue to have a movie deal soon about this "ordeal".

To all of you that are saying Ellen is in the wrong- think about if thsi was YOUR children- How in the hell would YOU feel if police officers knocked on your door and snatched a puppy out of YOUR child's hands? You wouldn't like it and if you say it wouldn't bother you, then let's all hope you never reproduce!

Funny how there is no evidence to support the fact. Why are they being so cruel? Just give the dog back to the girls. They are only making asses out of themselves. They are being cruel to the dog and the children.

Stupid contracts. Some people need to get a gripe on reality.
