Our heart goes out to Salma Hayek. The actress has been mourning the death of her dog, Mozart, that was shot and killed by her neighbor.

Allegedly, Mozart had strayed away from the actress’ ranch into the neighbor’s and had started chasing their other dogs. According to the New York Daily News, the neighbors said they had no idea the dog was Salma’s, they shot with a pellet gun with the intent to just scare the dog away.

Authorities justified the shooting saying the dog had trespassed into the neighbor’s property and was fighting with other dogs.

Recently, Salma, who’s a devout animal lover, took to Instagram to speak out about the shooting that happened on February 19 (at the time of the post, details of the shooting had not been confirmed): “I haven’t posted for a week as I been mourning the death of my dog, Mozart who I personally delivered out of his mother’s womb. He was found dead in my ranch last Friday with a shot close to his heart. I am hoping that the Washington State authorities do justice to this wonderful dog whom in 9 years never bit or attacked anyone. He loved his territory and never strayed away…he was the most loving and loyal companion. He didn’t deserve a slow and painful death. #doglover#animalrights #dog #dogoftheday #rip#delivery #washingtonstateauthorities.”

Although the shooting was ruled justified by the authorities, prosecutors will be reviewing it further.

Meanwhile, Salma’s neighbor, Kim Lund is still in disbelief: “I’m still coming to terms with all of this, as you can imagine. We didn’t even know we killed a dog. To find out we killed a dog that belonged to a high profile person, I’m in shock,” she said. “My heart is broken. I’m really sorry that the dog died.”

De quién fui la partera, lo encontramos el viernes pasado con un tiro cerca del corazón. Espero que las autoridades del estado de Washington le hagan justicia a este extraordinario perro que durante 9 años nunca mordió o atacó a nadie, adoraba su territorio y nunca se escapó. Era el compañero más leal y no se merecía una muerte lenta y dolorosa. #muerte #perro #justiciaporlosanimales

Salma Hayek Took Photos Of Herself Getting Swallowed By A Wave And Everyone Is Concerned For

Salma Hayek’s Hot Girl Summer is officially OTT. The Mexican-American actress has taken the viral vibe (take notes: it’s a mindset, not a lifestyle) to a completely different dimension in her latest Instagram post which has left concerned onlookers with hundreds of questions.

In a recent post to her Instagram account, the actress is 1. raising questions about how waves should be used and 2. sending me on the hunt for a lavender bathing suit.

Now that you’re caught up, are you ready for a deep dive into Hayek’s recent post?

Giphy.com

Let’s do this!

So Hayek posted a slideshow of pictures to her Instagram that channel a one-woman take on iconic film scenes.

In a caption for the post, Hayek wrote that “Sometimes you just need to surrender and let the waters move and embrace you. A veces hay que dejarse ir y dejar que las aguas te muevan y te abracen. #waves.”

The caption alone raises a TON of questions. For instance, what does Salma feel like she needs to surrender to? Perhaps it’s her deep desire to appear in a classic film so she can reenact an icon scene?

You know the scenes we’re talking about.

The extremely ~sexUAL~ one in “From Here To Eternity.”

Which inspired a not quite as sexual scene in “Grease.”

The photos also show Salma in the pretty cute lavender bathing suit she has been posting about nearly all of August

Here Salma is in the bathing suit in its most recent appearance.

And here Salma is wearing the suit earlier in the month.

This was posted on AUGUST 13.

Salma Hayek wore a lavender bathing suit to the beach so I wore a lavender bathing suit.

This was posted to Salma’s account on August 7th with the hashtag #water #agua. It’s cute, figure-hugging and makes her look like a goddess on the beach.

But back to the Real Business of the matter:

Salma’s pseudo drowning pic posted this week which gives us all kinds of emo vibes.

It has most of us confused about whether or not she’s okay? Or, if she’s on a different level than the rest of us and is actually pretty tight.

And because Instagram, naturally, is a place to ask real questions about celebrities and their daily celebrity doings we felt pretty validated that others have questions too.

For example:

landopolo asks the question “Oh no baby what is you doin” in a comment of the post made on a post of the images by @officialseanpenn, an account which also wanted to know if Hayek needed a lifeguard.

And this one: “is she okay” – by concerned user ava_royale

And this comment by “Corpse goals😍” by therealgenevievetho.

Hayek also did an extreme close up of herself being nearly damn swallowed by a wave.

To which I repeat the wise words of Instagram user landopolo “Oh no baby what is you doin.”

It’s okay though, she pops up for breath pretty soon after.

And that’s on that on Salma Hayek must be trolling us news.

In our next episode, we’ll be chatting about Hayek’s newly changed bio which has been changed to a bunch of emojis.

Julián Castro Makes History: Becomes First Candidate To Release Comprehensive Animal Welfare Plan

Julián Castro Makes History: Becomes First Candidate To Release Comprehensive Animal Welfare Plan

@PaulHShapiro / Twitter

It’s August 2019. We are just over a year away from the 2020 elections but the Democratic primary race has been well underway for a few months already. 

We’ve had two debates and have gotten to know each of the 23 Democrats running for President a bit better as they share their policy viewpoints. We’ve learned where the candidates stand on immigration, healthcare, foreign policy, racism, and Trump’s impeachment. However, until now, none of the candidates have outlines policy positions when it comes to animal welfare. 

Julian Castro isn’t just the first candidate of this primary race to release a detailed animal welfare plan, he’s the first candidate for president to ever release a plan like this one. 

In a Twitter announcement, Julián Castro announced his far-ranging animal welfare plan.

With his new set of proposals, Castro positions himself among the leading voices for advancing animal protections, something that polling suggests the public overwhelmingly supports.

His ideas include ending the euthanasia of healthy cats and dogs in shelters, making animal cruelty a federal crime and expanding U.S. protected lands. The plan won praise from animal welfare advocates who have pushed 2020 candidates to publish similar platforms and to support animal-friendly legislation.

“We applaud Secretary Castro’s proposal to protect our pets, wildlife, and animals raised for food,” Brad Pyle, the political director at the Humane Society Legislative Fund, said in a statement to The Washington Post. “Voters are lucky to have so many animal protection champions seeking the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.”

Under Castro’s pawlicy, the US would move away from euthanizing perfectly healthy animals who are waiting for forever homes in shelters.

In a post on Medium, Castro said, “Last year, over 700,000 animals were euthanized in America’s shelters, a cruel and unjust fate for far too many lives. But our nation can choose a different path. This month, Delaware became the first “no-kill” state, with more than 90 percent of animals returned to their owners or provided a home.

His policy would also provide protections for farmed animals, the farming of which contribute the greatest risk towards climate change.

And in that same Medium post, Casto suggested the federal government should follow California’s lead in adopting more progressive protections for farmed animals.

Paul Shapiro, a leading animal rights advocate, has come out in favor of Castro’s plan.

Shapiro is the author of “Clean Meat: How Growing Meat Without Animals Will Revolutionize Dinner and the World“ and a vocal advocate for animal welfare. In a tweet, he welcomed the groundbreaking announcement and thought that it could lead to even greater protections for animals in the future.

Many have pointed out that the policy plan come just days after the Trump administration gutted protections for endangered species.

Castro may see an opening as the issue may have even more resonance with Democrats after President Trump’s weakening of the Endangered Species Act, the law that brought the bald eagle, the humpback whale and the grizzly bear back from the brink of extinction. Castro, meanwhile, said he would strengthen the landmark legislation.

In announcing his plan, Castro sought to position himself as the fix to four years of Trump administration policies.

“The president does not care about animals and his cruel actions prove it. He has put corporate profits over living creatures and individual fortunes over our future,” Castro said in a statement. “This groundbreaking plan will improve the treatment of animals around the country and the world, and undo Donald Trump’s damage.”

And Castro’s policy would go directly after one of Trump Jr’s favorite so-called ‘hobbies.’ 

His plan would also end the import of big-game trophies. Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, is an infamous big-game hunter.

“Protecting these majestic animals must first start with repealing the Trump administration’s NRA loopholes that allow trophy hunting and enforcing strict penalties on the domestic ivory trade,” the plan reads.

Reactions to Castro’s plan have been met with huge surprise and admiration across Twitter.

A lot of people admitted that this policy announcement was enough to cement their support for the Texas congressman. And they hoped that Castro made it through the upcoming primary process so they could vote for him in their state’s primary.

One Twitter user, @thejohnburke1, said “I loved Julian Castro already, but a man who fights for animals is who I’ll fight for.”

Another person on Twitter, @hr072, said “I love love love this… Brilliant plan by #Castro2020”

Many joked that a whole new constituency may have just been created by this groundbreaking policy announcement.

Few doubt the commitment and dedication of animal lovers. They are often truly dedicated to their cause and seldom take no for an answer. From so-called cat ladies to militant vegans and pony girls, the animal welfare/rights community is a tight knit community that may just help carry Castro into the next debates with this new policy plan.
