Hawk Snatches Puppy Belonging To Shanna Moakler, Former Playboy Playmate

A hawk swooped off with a puppy belonging to an ex-Playmate outside her home near Los Angeles.

Shanna Moakler, also known as a "Dancing With the Stars" contestant tweeted on Monday that "an eagle attacked my 2 chi's today.

"[M]y girl pup is in the vet," the tweet read, "my boy is missing."

By "chi's," Moakler apparently meant "chihuahuas."

In subsequent tweets and in an interview with Hollyscoop, the ex-wife of Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker said it was a hawk that snatched her dog from her Calabasas neighborhood.

Moakler -- who appeared in Playboy's December 2001 issue -- told Hollyscoop that the hawk attacked shortly after she'd let the dogs outdoors to answer the call of nature.

The dog that survived the encounter with the winged predator is in rough shape. Moakler said the female puppy might lose sight in one eye.

"{N}ot gonna lie, feel like hunting hawks today," she tweeted on Wednesday, "don't feel bad about it either."
