Police in Longmont, Colo., have arrested a woman on suspicion of animal cruelty, after she allegedly stuffed a Chihuahua puppy down her pants during a domestic dispute.
Denver's NBC-affiliate KUSA reported that police found Johna Turner arguing with a man at a home. She reportedly agreed to leave the premises, but wanted to take her dogs with her. She was intoxicated, KUSA reported.
When officers arrived, a witness told them to check Turner's pants, KUSA reported. When Turner shook her leg, a Chihuahua fell out. The puppy was reportedly not hurt.
Turner pleaded not guilty to one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty and remained in jail Thursday on a $2,500 bond, according to The Longmont Times-Call.
The puppy was born on Aug. 31, the Times-Call reported.
This puppy was among three puppies and a mother Chihuahua/Beagle mix in the apartment, who are now in good condition at the Longmont Humane Society, according to the Times-Call.
