CASCADE, Wis. (AP) -- A woman is charged in Sheboygan County with leaving her dog to die in her foreclosed home.
A mortgage company employee checking the house in Cascade found the 8-year-old Beagle-mix frozen on a pet bed inside Kimberly Fidlin's former house. The utilities had been turned off and a pipe had burst causing extensive water damage.
The Sheboygan Press Media says veterinarians who examined the dog said it had been neglected for many months, was severely emaciated and likely froze within a day or so of dying.
Fidlin is charged with felony animal abandonment and five misdemeanors. Fidlin says she last visited the home a month ago and found the dog had died.
