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 26-year-old Ana Prada suspended the animal by its leash, and punched and kicked it at South Station. A 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. She pleaded not guilty Friday and was ordered to wear a GPS monitor and not to leave the state without permission.

Prada pleaded not guilty Thursday to animal cruelty.
