(Newser) – Actress Salma Hayek has delivered sad and surprising news to her fans on Instagram: Someone shot and killed her 9-year-old dog, Mozart. "He was found in my ranch last Friday with a shot close to his heart," she writes. It's not clear what happened, and Hayek says she hopes authorities in Washington state can track down the shooter. Mozart had never attacked or bit anyone, writes Hayek, who adds that she "personally delivered" Mozart from his mother's womb. ETOnline notes that Hayek regularly fills her Instagram account with loving shots of Mozart and her other animals.
