Krista Allen Catches Burglar Mid-Break-In ... Family Dog Injured

2/23/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Krista Allen walked in on a would-be burglar, who she says badly injured her dog during the break-in ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Krista arrived back at her San Fernando Valley home Thursday and found a transient woman inside. We're told Krista called 911 and held the woman down until cops arrived.

The story gets crazier ... Krista claimed the woman pointed out that their family dog was having difficulty getting up, which led Krista to believe the woman had kicked her pup. The dog -- an 11-year-old beagle named Jack -- was, in fact, injured. Krista had to take him to the vet for treatment. She posted an update on him, and also revealed ... another dog, a puggle named Jake, was also injured during the incident.

Cops say the woman drank Krista's alcohol and ingested pills that were in the house. We're told she also had Krista's vibrator.

We've reached out to Krista's rep ... no comment. 

Corinne Olympios Meet My New Hunny!

2/19/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios has finally found her Hunny and it's not in DeMario Jackson, despite the two spending Valentine's Day together. 

We're told the "Bachelor in Paradise" star just got a new mini-Pomeranian pup, which she's named Hunny. Corinne got the pooch 2 weeks ago after plopping down a couple of G's.

Corinne already has a chow named Mookie, but wanted Mookie to have a companion since she's working a lot and often not home. 

Hunny was flown in from Tokyo, where the mini-Pom breeder is based. The two pooches look an awful lot alike, apart from the obvious size difference ...  they're already getting along just swimmingly.

As for DeMario, he ain't in the dog house. We're told the two are still "just friends."

EXCLUSIVE

A lucky pooch and its owner escaped near disaster thanks to a quick-thinking civilian and an LAX bike cop, who saved the dog after it'd been pulled into an escalator.

A woman and her dog were headed up the airport escalator last week when the dog -- dressed in a tracksuit -- got it's paw caught in the landing grate.

Lucky for the woman, a man standing nearby acted quickly to hit the emergency shut off ... and moments later LAX cops were on the scene to unscrew the grate's teeth and free the pup -- with all 4 paws still in tact!

And they say only cats have 9 lives ... 

Logan Paul Get That Dead Rat Crap Off YouTube! ... Demands PETA

2/8/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Logan Paul is teaching millions of his young followers to be cruel to animals with his dead rat taser video -- this according to PETA, which now wants the clip yanked.

Lisa Lange -- PETA's Senior Vice President -- tells TMZ that the video posted this week showing Logan repeatedly firing a taser at a dead rat is repulsive, adding that it's clear he hasn't learned his lesson from the suicide forest debacle.

Lange says PETA is also calling on YouTube to take Logan's clip down entirely, explaining ... "This sort of content has no place on YouTube or anywhere else, as it could desensitize young people to cruelty to animals." She adds ... "PETA is calling on the platform to remove it." 

As you'll recall ... Logan's catching a new wave of backlash for his latest stunt. He tases the dead rat, lifts it from the string, and tases it again once it's in the trash. Safe to say, people are pissed.

Ball's in your court, YouTube. Ya know how PETA feels about it.

Sarah Silverman PETA Pissed About Grammy Puppy Consolation Prize? Who Gives a F***!!!

1/31/2018 7:02 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sarah Silverman rolled her eyes at PETA for pissing on the puppy gag at the Grammys.

We got the funny lady Tuesday at LAX and asked about PETA bitching that James Corden handed out pups as a consolation prize. PETA thinks it was wrong to put the dogs under bright lights and it sent a bad message that dogs are prizes rather than family members. 

Sarah scared us by suggesting a dead dog was tucked inside her backpack. Fact is, she walks the walk as a vegetarian and has a message for the animal rights org.

Fiona the Hippo It's My 1st Bday!!! Pass the 600-Pound Cake

1/24/2018 2:02 PM PST

She was a long shot to make it this far, but Fiona the hippo turned 1 year old Wednesday ... and the Cincinnati Zoo is having a phat fat celebration! 

You'll recall, Fiona was born 6 weeks premature and weighed a mere 29 pounds -- a record for any hippo born in captivity. The good news is she's a very healthy 600 pounds one year later.

Naturally, Fi got a cake for her bday. No ice cream cake though ... strictly fruits and veggies, but she's a herbivore so it's cool. She's so damn cute, we'd almost forget the whole thing about hippos being seriously deadly animals. Almost. 

Happy bday, Fiona! Don't eat us.

1/17/2018 12:40 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Paul Teutul Sr. wants to ride off into the sunset with more land and more animals, but he's gotta unload his old ranch first, so he slashed the price ... TMZ has learned.

The "American Chopper" star recently dropped asking price from $2.9 million to $2.5 mil for his 38-plus-acre upstate New York spread. We're told he's on the hunt for a place with more land for his rescue animals. Fun fact about Paul ... he's VP of the Hudson Valley SPCA.

Paul originally put the Montgomery, NY home on the market in Oct. It's got 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, attached pool house and, of course, the pool ... complete with slide and waterfall! His listing agent is Seta Tunell with Ellis Sotheby's International Realty.

The home was frequently featured on 'Chopper' ... which, btw, is coming back to TV this February after a 5-year hiatus. We're told Paul's animal rescue operation -- with mini-horses, donkeys and alpacas -- will be prominently featured.

PETA Rips Horse-Punching Fan ... Ban Him From Eagles Games!!

1/16/2018 1:24 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The drunk Philadelphia Eagles fan who allegedly attacked a police officer AND his horse should be BANNED from owning pets AND attending Eagles games ever again ... this according to a huge animal rights org.

Cops reported the fan, Taylor Hendricks, repeatedly attacked an officer and his horse as he was being escorted out of Saturday's game against the Falcons. Hendricks was arrested for aggravated assault, illegally taunting a police horse, simple assault and defiant trespass.

But Stephanie Bell, senior director for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, tells TMZ Sports Hendricks should get more than that.

"PETA is asking the prosecutor to charge the suspect with cruelty to animals, and if he's convicted, we hope sentencing will include a psychiatric evaluation and a ban on owning or harboring any animals, from horses to dogs and cats."

"Anyone who would violently attack an animal likely has rage issues and could be a danger to the community at large."

And they didn't stop there ... Bell calls for Hendricks to be forever banned from Eagles games to "send a strong message that such abuse will not be tolerated."

Zooey Deschanel I'm Too Busy to Horse Around in Court

1/16/2018 9:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Zooey Deschanel says she's way too busy making TV shows to do something as frivolous as showing up for a court date. 

Zooey was sued over a horse. The equine owner claims Zooey leased the animal from her back in 2013 and overworked it, causing it to become lame. The owner wants vet bills and other damages.

The case has lingered in the court system for a while, but now it's time for a mandatory settlement conference ... which means the judge is trying to get both sides to reach an agreement to avoid trial.

Zooey just filed legal docs saying she just can't fit the appearance into her schedule, her lawyer saying, "Ms. Deschanel is a well-known actress with an extremely extensive and complicated work schedule."

As they say ... tell it to the judge. She did, and the judge said Zooey has to appear ... or else.

EXCLUSIVE

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are going public -- the new couple strolled on the beach over the weekend, packed on some PDA and, for good measure ... hung out with Kenny G.

Chris and Dakota have been dating for a few months, but previously took great measures to keep it private. That all changed Sunday in Malibu ... where the "Fifty Shades of Grey" star and Chris looked inseparable. 

They had some unexpected company on the beach when Kenny G popped up, sadly without his saxophone. So, no Coldplay-Kenny G collab.

That Dakota's a lucky woman.

She wrote, "People not the only heroes in our little community. Met some 4 legged ones too. Searches continuing today."

The rescue worker also gives Oprah a lesson in how the canines operate and how they differ.

Chris Brown Monkey Business Could Get Him Prosecuted

1/12/2018 1:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown got himself a pet monkey -- but never got a permit to keep her -- so now he's sans monkey and could face criminal charges ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported ... CB took heat last month after posting a pic of his 3-year-old daughter Royalty holding the baby capuchin monkey named Fiji, because people thought it was a danger to her and belongs in the wild. Chris told everyone to chill.

According to law enforcement ... several folks notified the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, who opened an investigation.

Turns out Chris never got a permit for the exotic pet, so authorities got a search warrant but before Chris' house got raided, he voluntarily agreed to surrender the animal.

According to our sources ... CB could be charged with having a restricted species without a permit, a misdemeanor, that carries a maximum of 6 months in jail. The case has been turned over to the L.A. City Attorney.

Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ, "As I leave my office in Downtown L.A. and walk past people sleeping on the street on my way to defend people charged by the City Attorney with selling medical marijuana ... now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity."

As for Fiji ... she's fine.
