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
