Nearly 100 ducks illegally released up for adoption soon
SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) -- Nearly 100 domesticated ducks that officials say were illegally released in New Jersey are expected to be available for adoption early next week.
Barnyard Sanctuary founder Tamala Lester tells The Record newspaper that she's received more than 100 offers to adopt the 92 Khaki Campbell ducks. They'll be available on Aug. 8 after they have been in quarantine for three weeks.
Authorities say they don't have new information into the investigation, which started last month, after a report of ducks being released into the Hackensack River. Many were found in the grass outside of a Secaucus mall.
Lester says each duck will be available for a $20 adoption fee.
