Woman Claims Hot Tea Burned Her Legs And Killed Her Dog, Sues Starbucks

It’s not a secret that when you order a hot beverage from Starbucks, that stuff is incredibly hot. Sometimes even a cup sleeve isn’t enough to hold the cup. You usually have to wait a bit before you take that first sip.

But of course from time to time you burn your tongue from drinking the scorching hot drink or you go over a speed bump and a drop gets on your leg. It happens. We aren’t the happiest when it does, but it’s expected when you’re dealing with a hot, hot drink right?

There are some people who don’t understand just how hot the drinks at Starbucks actually are. In fact, maybe it’s not even necessary to make their drinks as hot as they do. Apparently they make their drinks so hot that it severely burns people…and animals.

A woman from Denver, Colorado is the perfect example of this. Her and her dog got severely burned by a Starbucks beverage.

The dog actually got fatally burned. In fact, the burns were so bad that she decided to file a lawsuit against the coffee place.

According to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Denver on Monday, the woman ordered a Venti hot tea at a Starbucks.  

Deanna Solas-Solando, 58, ordered the drink at a drive-thru location on September 27, 2015.
