Sam Ronson -- Focus of Criminal Investigation

8/31/2010 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a criminal investigation underway in connection with the fatal attack involving Samantha Ronson's dog.

Sam Ronson's Dog

Officials from the County Department of Animal Care & Control tell TMZ there is a criminal investigation underway to determine cause of death for Tiger, the 3-pound Maltese that was killed after Sam's bulldog, Cadillac, got out of her apartment unit yesterday.

We're told Ronson -- who was sleeping at the time of the attack -- is the subject of the criminal investigation.  

An Animal Control official tells us they will be looking at the circumstances of the attack and Cadillac's propensity for violence.  As we first reported, Cadillac had attacked another dog a while back and had actually just come home from a 3-week socialization program.

Animal Control tells us this could be a 2 to 3 month investigation.

problem is, the other dog was off leash so the owner , of the dead dog, not protecting a dog that had no way to protect itself. Sam already shipped the dog off to the east coast to live where it would not be a danger to any other dogs. Sam obeyed the court order to complete the social training for her dog. This is going to end up with ZERO results. Had the other dog been on a leash, there might have been recourse from the other person, but you let you dog roam off leash then you better be on hand to protect it from danger.

who dat    

Hey fools she shipped her dog back east. No matter what the investigation finds the dog has fled the jurisdiction. You think animal control has the power to extradite it back to the state? This case is over. Animal control just hasn't figured that out yet. Maybe Sams dog will eventually make animal controls 10 most wanted list.

ok so.... not that i give a rats furry A$$, but let's alayze this for a moment...

1)Only rich morons can get away with opening a "criminal investigation" over a pet's death

2)I though the first report said no one saw blood on the dog)

3)This is just another example of money/fame hungry douchebag's looking for a legal war

bottom line, you'll spend more money on a criminal investigation, lawyers, etc. than it will take to cry (i guess) and go buy another dog. Oh yeah I forgot, it's because the supposed attacker is the dog of a celeb? (like, she's a lesbian dj who dated lohan... who give a schnitt)

4) D-O-G! if you have that much money, buy another one and move on... it's cheaper than a lawsuit
