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.
