That wacky Russian model who stabbed the stray dog to death

A model named Yuliana Romanova was walking her pit-bull in Moscow in 2001. She sported black velvet hat, blue fur-trimmed coat, short skirt and tall boots. Her dog then got in a spontaneous melee with a stray dog, described as the size of a police dog. I assume the stray was an Alsatian although for all I know they use chihuauhuas in the Russian police. Romanova intervened with a knife and stabbed the stray dog six times with a kitchen knife, causing its premature death.

Tough call. I despise pit bulls but big, hungry stray dogs wandering the city aren't exactly useful urban fixtures either. Yet I'd have to side against Romanova. Wearing a short skirt with a fur trimmed coat is a fashion misdemeanour at least.

Romanova initially said she wasn't too concerned cuz she had a modeling contract in Spain to attend to. But Russian animal activisits got all KGB on her ass and got the police to haul her in. Rather than strolling alongside inspiring Gaudi in Barcelona, the dagger-wielding fashionista was soon sporting a fashionable strait jacket in a Moscow insane asylum. The where-are-they-now (WATN) file on this fashionable mongrel murdering miss is empty. A group of artists committed to having Moscow overrun with stray animals made it into a major cause and commemorated the killing of the stray dog with a bronze dog "picking nits" outside a Moscow railway station.

The wide-eyed lingerie model in the burgundy bustier above, is NOT the model in question. Alas I could find no photo of the cruel culprit. But she's a fashion model with a conveniently similar name, Boston's Julia Romanova. If you see her you while walking your dog, don't cross the street or nuthin.

I know this is an old post, but you should get your facts straight. The "model" had a long history of cruelty to animals and mental illness. The dog that she killed was a small black mutt that merely barked at her dog - not an "Alsation as you assume". And if you don't like the idea of big hungry dogs wandering the streets, then donate to shelters instead of posting incorrect information.

Erin Wasson owns a pit bull terrier and adores him. And ditto on everything written in the above comment.

Why would you choose a pic of someone else cause you couldn't find the right pic?? That's just not right...

Wow! You get your facts wrong. You assume an almost nonchalant tone when talking about a life that was taken away. And you use someone else's photo and even go as far as to believe that just because they share a common name, she is equally insane!

Please, blog responsibly or cease blogging altogether!

You seem no less wacky than her.

Just because you are human doesn't mean you are 'entitled' to the space you occupy, city or otherwise.

I speak for many people and animals - its insensitive jerks like you the city is overrun with.
