ORLANDO, Fla. - WFTV learned a case of alleged animal abuse at the hands of a vet tech is finally being reviewed by the state attorney's office.

WFTV obtained video last month of vet tech Stefanie Stasse swinging a dog by its neck into a wall while she worked at the Emergency Pet Hospital in Orlando.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said it handed over the case to the state weeks ago but the state denied getting it from investigators until just recently after Eyewitness News questioned its status.
