Tanis Facing More Charges

- Moosic, Lackawanna County- A Lackawanna County man accused of repeated animal abuse violations is in custody again. 

Officials took John Tanis into custody just before Noon on Tuesday.

Pending the outcome of an upcoming animal cruelty case Tanis is only allowed to have one dog in his care.
