Animal cruelty charges are expected to be filed after police recovered the frozen corpse of a dog that was chained outside a Connecticut home on New Year’s Day.

Hartford police investigating the animal’s death said the dog was found dead and frozen inside its doghouse, lying in fecal material which was found frozen on its body.

Investigators believe the dog might have been outside for as long as a month before it was discovered by police.

According to WTIC-TV, the dog’s owner has been in jail for months on drug charges and claimed to have made arrangements for the dog’s care.
