About two dozen ducks were found Tuesday in a van without food or water near 10th and Spring Garden Streets, the Pennsylvania SPCA said.

The ducks apparently had been in crates inside the hot van, which belongs to Q & Q Live Poultry, for at least a day, the PSPCA said. A person on the street heard sounds coming from the van and sought help.

The driver of the van, Wan Wah Chuen, 46, is employed by Q & Q, which is based nearby, and was charged with a summary count of animal cruelty Wednesday afternoon, said Sarah Eremus, a PSPCA spokeswoman. He signed the ducks over to the PSPCA's care, she said.

Eremus said the ducks were at the agency's East Erie Avenue facility Wednesday night.
