The Pennsylvania SPCA is seeking the public's help finding the person or persons responsible for dumping a live dog in a trash bag at Wissahickon Valley Park in Northwest Philadelphia.

A good Samaritan reportedly came across the dog, whose head was sticking out of the trash bag, while taking a walk in the park on Tuesday morning.
