Sam Ronson

Named in Deadly

Dog-Eat-Dog Attack

8/30/2010 5:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Lindsay Lohan's ex-girlfriend Sam Ronson has been named in a brutal dog attack that occurred near her L.A. apartment ... an attack that left one animal dead.

083010-sam-tmz-cops-credit
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ someone called 911 around 11:10 AM ... claiming a "pit bull" attacked a smaller dog ... and then attacked the smaller dog's female owner.

We're told when officials arrived at the scene, the smaller dog was dead ... but its owner suffered only minor injuries.

We're told law enforcement has reason to believe the aggressive dog belongs to Sam Ronson ... because the dog's home address corresponds to Sam's apartment.

UPDATE 1:30 PM PT: Sources at the scene tell us the attack dog was not a pit bull, it was a bulldog. Sam Ronson is known to own a bulldog named Cadillac.

We're also told the dog that was killed is a "very small Maltese" ... that looked to weigh roughly three to five pounds. Animal Control has just arrived on scene.

UPDATE 1:50 PM PT: We're told Animal Control left without Sam's dog.

If you can't handle a bully breed or don't have the time to properly train one, don't f**** get one!! I wish irresponsible owners would face severe penalties when these things happen. Poor little doggy. :(

I bet no one thought seeing "Sam Ronson" and "dog-eat-dog" in the same sentence was going to actually be about dogs.

I have never ever seen "Sam" photographed where she looks healthy, very ghostly complexion in comparison to the tan queen.

Where do these losers come from & why do these drug addicts, whores, crack heads, pornos, drunks etc., so dominate the news?

Pitbulls should be banned as city pets and all owners made to carry extra insurance for having them.

She'll probably blame it on the little dog for wanting to get close to her because she's a celebrity. Then sue the little dog's owner for daring to be within her realm.

LOL @11 - no kidding!

And to you idiots who didn't read the whole thing - it was not a pitbull - it was a bulldog - totally different breed. Any breed of dog can be animal aggressive especially dominant dogs, unneutered dogs and dogs that are not socialized. It is NOT the breed. I have a pit bull rotweiller mix that is very dominate by nature, but that's why he was in day care and socialized from the get go. He was also trained non stop for three years. He's the most well behaved dog I have ever owned. It's all about the training. My sister has a very submissive female pit bull that hasn't had much training, but was socialized and gets along great withe dogs and cats and especially children. So knock off the breed bashing.

THANK YOU TMZ for not jumping on the medie anit-pitbull bandwagon by believing initial incorrect reports that the dog was a "pitbull"! many many times pit bulls are blamed for attacks by any dog with a big head, short hair, and/or wrinkles. Thank you for getting all the facts! BRAVO

PS. this should not be a surprising story. bad owners raise bad dogs and well this is case in point.
