Ashley Yeater Decides to Support Her Animal Abusing A-Hole Boyfriend
July 16, 2010
(ChattahBox) – Ashley Yeater may have lost more than her dog…she might have lost some of her fans. The Broadway star is gathering criticism after deciding to stay with her Marine boyfriend, who beat her dog nearly to death with a belt.
He also kicked poor little Emmit, a 10-lb Yorkie, before using his belt so brutally against the tiny body that the animal was almost killed in the attack.
When he was taken to the vet – two days later – vets were horrified to find that his ribs were cracked, his kidneys were badly damaged, and his eye had to be removed, leaving him partially blind.
They called police, who arrested Joseph Graves, a Marine Major and Iraq veteran.
His defense? The dog nipped him, and he lost control.
Perhaps the most shocking thing about his story comes not from A-Hole Graves, but from dog-owner Yeater. She has said she has ‘forgiven’ her man, and that they are absolutely fine.
“I’m relieved; We are moving on. Never once have I thought that he was a bad person or that he wanted to murder my dog,” she was quoted by the NY Daily News.
Apparently, she hasn’t considered the possible cause of such an enormous and disproportionate amount of anger that caused Graves to nearly beat a dog to death, then leave him suffering for two days before getting it help.
