Cascade woman charged with allegedly leaving dog to die in foreclosed home

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - A Sheboygan County woman faces six criminal charges after she allegedly left her dog to die in a home that was foreclosed upon.

39-year-old Kimberly Fidlin of Cascade is free on a signature bond, after she was charged with felony animal abandonment and five misdemeanor counts related to animal mistreatment and neglect.

According to prosecutors, a mortgage company was checking the house on January 21st when an employee found the eight-year-old Beagle-mix Lucky dead. The utilities were turned off, and a broken pipe had caused heavy water damage.

Veterinarians said the dog appeared neglected for months, and may have frozen within a day after dying.

Fidlin told investigators she fed Lucky just a few days before he died -- but she let his condition get worse because she could not afford veterinary care.

A status conference in the case is set for next Tuesday. A preliminary hearing on the felony count is planned for a week from Wednesday.
