Animal lovers, brace yourself. This is a tough post to read.

Salma Hayek shared the heartbreaking story of the death of one of her dogs, Mozart. The German Shepherd mix was shot and killed while running around near Hayek's property in Seattle. He was found dead last week, but it was unclear what had happened.

The Post reports that the dog's caretaker took them out as usual one afternoon, when one of the dogs, Mozart, ran off and did not come back. It was later that day, that Mozart's body was found. He had been shot with a pellet gun, and died a long and slow death from internal bleeding, according to a veterinarian that examined the dog. Hayek's neighbor has come forward and confessed to killing the pet.

Hayek has been mourning Mozart's death, and is hopeful that law enforcement will prosecute the person that did this to her pet, one she even helped deliver from his mother's womb. But, according to reports on TMZ, the dog was trespassing on her neighbor's property. He said he used the pellet gun to scare off her pets since they often came into his yard. Because the dog was trespassing, the cops are declaring it a closed case. The report also adds that pellet guns are not often lethal weapons, but the bullet had nicked one of the dog's arteries. Hayek is, as expected, not happy that there will not be "justice to this wonderful dog" that she lost.

"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" she wrote.

In addition to Mozart, Hayek has a large family of animals at her home.
