According to a Friday afternoon publication of the Asbury Park Press, the "good Samaritan," who claimed to have found a severely neglected dog tied up in a trash bag in Wall Township, N.J. , has been arrested.
The man, Keith Morgan, claimed that he saw a trash bag along the side of Belmar Blvd. on Thursday, and that he stopped to investigate after he noticed that the bag was moving.
Inside of the trash bag was a severely neglected dog, covered in severe mats which were caked with urine and feces.
It now appears that Morgan was not a good Samaritan, but possibly the neglectful owner who allowed the small dog to fall to a severe state of neglect.
Yesterday, the dog was taken to the Associated Humane Society in Tinton Falls and he is currently under the care of a veterinarian.
According to the shelter, the dog, which was named "Morgan," after he was initially brought to the facility, is recuperating with the assistance of a feeding tube.
After learning that the good Samaritans were likely the dog's abusers, the shelter opted to stop calling the neglected dog, "Morgan."
