Miley Cyrus' Dog: Killed By Coyote

by at .  Updated at .

Because she's that big of a star these days, it's been all over the Internet this week that Miley Cyrus' dog died.

The singer described her pain over the loss as "unbearable" and Miley even broke down on stage at one point, overcome with grief. 

A bit melodramatic, sure, but we understand. Losing a pet can be tough, particularly when the death happens in a violent, unexpected fashion as we just learned was the case with Miley's dog, Floyd.

A backup dancer posted a comment on Instagram about Floyd, expressing his condolences (seriously, when celebrities mourn, the whole world mourns.

But when a friend commented on it asking what happened, the dancer accidentally revealed that the dog was killed by a coyote.

It seems Miley wanted to keep this information under wraps for some reason. Perhaps she was afraid she'd be accused on negligence or just didn't want to re-live the incident by talking about it. But we don't think what this dancer did is such a bad thing.

Miley's reaction seemed a little over-the-top when the assumption was that Floyd had died of natural causes, but her monumental grief seems a a lot more understandable now.

Well, this news certainly has us bummed out. Let's move on with pictures of Miley gettin' her twerk on, shall we?
