BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania family expecting to pick up the ashes of their beloved pet were instead handed the animal's frozen body.

Lisa Horseman tells WTAE-TV (http://bit.ly/2t2kU8h ) the employees at Rainbow Veterinary Hospital in Darlington did not give an explanation when they handed her the frozen remains of her dog, Drew.

She and Marlane Engles had previously decided to have the sick pet euthanized. They had asked for him to be cremated at a nearby business, but instead Engles recorded a video of employees carrying the remains wrapped in a blanket.

In a statement, Rainbow Veterinary Hospital says there was a "delay" with Horseman's burial request, but it was ultimately fulfilled.
