Sport Dogs duo Hunter, Ugle-Hagan face time out
Five charged in violent theft of Lady Gaga’s dogs
Ryan Fischer was shot in the chest while out walking the singer’s dogs in Los Angeles two months ago.Detectives do not believe that the thieves knew the dogs belonged to the pop star, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement. The motive for the February 24 robbery, investigators believe, was the value of the French bulldogs – which can run into the thousands of dollars.
Western Bulldogs star Lachie Hunter faces a stint on the sidelines after suffering a broken hand in the come-from-behind win over Carlton.
Hunter started in attack at Marvel Stadium on Sunday and was influential despite the injury when pushed up to a wing in the second half.
His performance helped the Dogs overturn a 27-point deficit as they powered home to win 16.11 (107) to 13.13 (91) and move back into second spot on the ladder.
But Hunter is now likely to miss the blockbuster meeting with third-placed Port Adelaide on Saturday night.
Human Remains Found Inside Black Bears Euthanized After Woman Killed in Colorado
Officials believe the remains belong to a 39-year-old woman who was found on Friday evening after not returning from walking her dogs.Three bears—a mom and two yearlings—were euthanized following the suspected attack and a Colorado Parks and Wildlife Pathologist found human remains in two of them. Officials suspect the remains belong to an unidentified 39-year-old woman, whose body was found on Friday off a highway north of Durango.
"It was a pretty determined, tough effort to get through the game and there's a chance that he might need a plate put in that (hand)," Dogs coach Luke Beveridge said.
"It's in the fourth metatarsal, the outside one, which isn't a significant thing, but they sting.
"Lachie had a huge last quarter when he went up to the wing."
Hunter's injury came as No.1 draft pick Jamarra Ugle-Hagan suffered a setback of his own in his pursuit of an AFL debut, taken out of a VFL match because of concussion.
Ugle-Hagan kicked an early goal in Footscray's VFL win over Carlton but copped a knock to the head while attempting to tackle an opponent will serve a minimum 12 days out of action.
The Bulldogs have a VFL bye in round five and Beveridge, who earlier in the week said the highly rated teenager was about a month away from a senior call-up, suggested Ugle-Hagan may be sidelined for a couple of weeks.
"He was just a bit too eager and got jolted, basically," Beveridge said.
"He was jaded enough and our doc assessed him as having some symptoms so we took him out of the game.
"It's a shame because he's been getting through his work and he's headed in the right direction."
Beveridge praised AFL second-gamer Jordon Sweet's performance in the ruck against Carlton in the absence of Tim English (concussion) and Stefan Martin (achilles).
English is a chance to return against Port Adelaide but Martin faces more time on the sidelines.
