Woman accused of abusing dog at Boston station

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) — A Nevada woman was arrested and animal control officers seized her Yorkshire terrier after police say witnesses saw her beating the dog in a Boston train station bathroom.

Witnesses told police that 26-year-old Ana Prada suspended the animal by its leash, and punched and kicked it in a restroom at South Station on Thursday.

One woman alerted transit police after witnessing the alleged beating Thursday morning.

Authorities say the dog, named Dolce, was dressed in a pink bow and striped sweater.

Prada of Henderson, Nev., was in Boston for arraignment on a drug trafficking charge after allegedly leaving two gloves full of painkillers in an airport hotel in September.

The 26-year-old Prada pleaded not guilty to animal cruelty on Thursday. Her drug arraignment is Friday.
