Salma Hayek revealed Friday that her beloved dog, Mozart, was fatally shot a week ago.

“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,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “He was found dead in my ranch last Friday with a shot close to his heart.”

Hayek added that Mozart, 9, had never been aggressive at all. “He loved his territory and never strayed away ... he was the most loving and loyal companion,” she wrote. “He didn't deserve a slow and painful death.”

The “Frida” star has long been vocal about her strong love of animals, posting photos of her numerous pets -- including multiple rescue animals -- on Instagram.

“I have five horses, four alpacas, one cat, eight dogs, one hamster, five parrots, two fish,” she told Ellen DeGeneres in 2013. “I’m sure i’m forgetting something. This is like giving thanks at the Oscars, you know you forget someone.” She then added that she also has rabbits, turkeys and chickens.

Let’s hope she finds justice for Mozart soon.
