SECAUCUS, N.J. - Police say that Quinglian Li, 37, of Secaucus is facing seven counts of animal cruelty charges after police found seven dead ducks in a box, several others struggling to walk and dozens more scattered nearby the Mill Creek Shopping Mall in Secaucus.

Police got a call Thursday afternoon about the ducks being dumped.

The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife responded on Saturday by rounding up 92 juvenile Khaki Campbell ducks and transporting them to Barnyard Animal Sanctuary in Columbia, N.J.

“They came to us to find new homes,” said Tamala Lester, Executive Director of the Sanctuary.

Lester said that the surviving ducks had been checked by a vet and appear to be okay. They are now up for adoption.
