Salma Hayek is mourning the death of her dog Mozart, who was shot in the heart on the Mexican actress’s ranch in Washington state in the US.
“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,” Hayek wrote on Instagram.
In her post the actress, who had included a photo of the dog while it still lived, expressed her indignation about what had happened and asked police to do everything possible to find the gunman.
“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,” she said.
The artist, 49, admitted last August on NBC’s Tonight Show, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, that she has a habit of adopting strays and that at the time she had nine dogs.
