AMARILLO -- The City of Amarillo says in addition to the criminal investigation into practices at Animal Control the city also will do an internal review for possible violations of city policy.

As we first reported Monday, two animal control employees are on administrative leave.

KAMR NBC 4 learned Amarillo police have been investigating for two weeks.

A city spokeswoman says early in the investigation, they took steps to ensure the proper handling of the animals at animal control.

We'll have more as it becomes available.
