Woman sentenced for torture of boyfriend's puppy

Woman who tortured boyfriend’s puppy to death has been sentenced

On October 22, a Virginia woman was sentenced for torturing her boyfriend’s puppy to death. As reported by NBC News 12, 21-year-old Yasmine Burton, of Powhatan, was sentenced to five years in jail, with three years suspended, for torturing and killing a 10-month-old pit bull puppy named El Choppo.

Burton tortured and killed the pup in November 2019 because she was mad at her abusive boyfriend. She took her anger out on the puppy by hanging him from a tree. The hanging caused peri-tracheal hemorrhaging – El Choppo was strangled to death.

Burton apologized for killing the pup and she has stated that drugs made her to it. She stated, “I thought things were happening that were not.” It is unclear if her statement is in reference to her boyfriend’s alleged abuse or not.

After being released from prison, Burton will be on probation and prohibited from being in contact with companion animals.
