Woman Accused of Abusing Dog at Boston Train Station

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.

    The dog doesn’t need training or discipline, the
    owner needs to learn how to control the dog. Everyone thinks an animal needs training, the owner needs to learn how to control the animal.
