#TheList Victoria-Louise Chamberlain (also uses the surname Robinson), born 06/09/1999, formerly of Castleford and more recently Post Office Road, Featherstone, Pontefract WF7 5ER – failed to intervene to stop her dog Sasha being repeatedly beaten by her former partner or to seek veterinary treatment for the dog’s serious injuries
Victoria-Louise Chamberlain is the former partner of Joe Bucktrout, who was jailed in November 2019 for repeatedly attacking Sasha. The dog’s injuries included dislocated hips, rib fractures and cigarette burns.
Chamberlain was convicted in absence of two offences, namely that she failed to provide vet treatment and caused unnecessary suffering to the dog by failing to protect her from her boyfriend Joe Bucktrout.
In their investigations, the RSPCA found Sasha had sustained severe injuries over several months, where treatment was never sought.
Sasha’s injuries were discovered after the RSPCA were handed recordings taken over a four-day period where Bucktrout can be heard shouting at Sasha, followed by loud bangs and Sasha is heard whimpering.
Chamberlain’s voice could also be heard on the recordings.
She was given a 10-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months and banned from keeping all animals for life. She may appeal the ban after five years.
Sasha was signed over to the RSPCA earlier on in the process and has been happily rehomed.
RSPCA Inspector Vanessa Reid said: “I’m so happy for her. She’s such a wonderful, loving dog who just craves affection despite all that has happened to her.”
