Salma Hayek’s neighbor shot and killed her 9-year-old dog with a pellet gun after it was found wandering on their property this weekend.

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 Hace una semana que no pongo nada ya que he estado de duelo por la muerte de mi perro Mozart. 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

“I am hoping that the Washington State authorities do justice to this wonderful dog whom in 9 years never bit or attacked anyone,” Hayek wrote on Instagram. “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.”

Hayek’s neighbor confessed to shooting her dog on Sunday, TMZ reports, and “told police he was sick of her dogs coming onto his property and attacking his dogs, which he says happened every time Salma’s caretaker took the pets for a walk.”

The neighbor said he had no intention of killing Hayek’s dog and thought the pellet gun would not be lethal. (PHOTOS: Salma Hayek’s Red Carpet Plus One Will ‘Cleave’ You Speechless)
