Neighbor fired air rifle, unaware it hit Salma Hayek's dog





SEATTLE (AP) Salma Hayek's neighbor fired an air rifle toward a dog that had come into his garage and fought with his dogs, apparently unaware that he had struck and killed the actress' dog, authorities in Washington state said Monday.

The Thurston County Sheriff's Office has been investigating after Hayek's dog was found shot on her ranch on Feb. 19, about 70 miles south of Seattle.
Kim Lund, the actress' neighbor, told The Associated Press her husband had not intended to kill the dog.

"We didn't even know we hit the dog," she said Monday, adding that her husband held up the pellet gun and shot it to scare the dogs away. She said one of the dogs was on top of her dog at the time.

Lt. Cliff Ziesemer said Monday that a neighbor told a deputy he was inside his house when he heard what sounded like a dog fight in his garage. The neighbor says he fired one shot from an air rifle and the other two dogs ran off.

1. If he didn't mean to shoot the dog?

 

Why shoot toward the dog? Dumb.

2. I know someone who did the same thing. One too many pumps on the air rifle.

You never know about other people's dogs, though.

3. Clap your phucking hands real hard, asshole...

 

That usually works with animals, instead of just grabbing a weapon right away. FFS

7. Obviously, but my point is...

the story does not ring true - an air rifle might not be loud enough to scare away an animal

11. HOLY SHIT! You could at least post an NSFW warning. That was nearly porn...

and I'm not talking about gun porn.

As to what was happening and whether it was an on going issue with her dogs, is not stated, nor is it really known what happened.

13. At least the guy fessed up, her not knowing had to be agonizing.

 

A pellet gun killed her dog? Really?

15. With enough pressure it can, though most of it depends on where it hits and the type of pellet used.

14. Hayek's dogs were not under her control as legally required.

 

If Hayek's dog was in an fight with the neighbor dogs, no less in his own garage and an animal he did not know, he certainly has the right to defend his dogs and himself.

The chosen defensive instrumentality was legal and proportionate, and whether he was aware if he struck the animal is immaterial, as is the celebrity of the dog's owner.

If you want to keep your pets safe, ensure they are under your control and supervision and all time, particularly if they are human or animal aggressive. The police should be investigating Hayek and issuing her a warning.
