SHEBOYGAN -- A Sheboygan woman whose dog froze to the sidewalk while left outside in single-digit temperatures has pleaded not guilty to intentionally mistreating animals.He probably didn't want to come inside because she was a nut! I'm glad they took him away!
Fifty-nine-year-old Alice Bigler made her initial court appearance Monday on the misdemeanor charge.
Authorities say Bigler left her 120-pound border collie, Jiffy, outside overnight earlier this month when temperatures dipped into the single digits. Police have speculated the overweight dog survived because it was protected by layers of insulating fat.
A criminal complaint says Bigler tried to bring the dog inside, checked on him repeatedly and brought him a blanket.
