ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Animal control officers have seized 13 emaciated dogs from a home in Girdwood.

KTUU-TV ( reports officers on Wednesday also found a dog at the home that had died and may have starved to death.

Animal shelter spokeswoman Laura Atwood says the animal control office received a tip by email that the dogs were being neglected.

Officers accompanied by Alaska State Troopers visited the home Wednesday afternoon.

Troopers say they are investigating the matter as a possible animal cruelty case but have not filed charges.

The 13 dogs were taken to the animal shelter for care.
