Ozzy devastated after his dog is eaten by coyotes.
Ozzy once shot all 17 of his cats while on drugs.
Ozzy Osbourne’s pet dog has been eaten by a coyote in the grounds of his family’s Los Angeles mansion. The Pomeranian, who Osbourne, the former lead singer with British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, called Little Bit, was attacked on Tuesday.
It is believed the 60-year-old ‘Prince of Darkness’ and his wife Sharon were watching the Michael Jackson memorial on television when the attack happened and did not hear the dog’s yelps.
The couple’s daughter, Kelly Osbourne, said in a Twitter message that her father – who has a history of animal abuse including biting the heads off live bats and doves – "is devastated – she was his other woman."
In the late 1970s Osbourne was removed from the offices of a record company after he bit the head off a live dove and spat it on the ground to get the attention of executives.
He also famously bit the head off a bat he thought was rubber while performing at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1982.
Osbourne has also admitted that, at the height of his drug addiction, he shot his family’s pets. "I was taking drugs so much I was a wreck. The final straw came when I shot all our cats. We had about 17, and I went crazy and shot them all."
The Osbournes now have 18 dogs at their sprawling home. Mrs Osbourne is a regular at the Los Angeles stray dog home and often gives homeless dogs a new home.
Last month one of her pooches needed emergency treatment after being bitten by an adder.
Authorities in Los Angeles are so concerned about coyote attacks on pets they have issued guidelines for owners. The Department of Animal Services warns: "Wild animals are opportunistic, and coyotes fit this mould very well."
