Man who beat duck sentenced

`An Atlantic City man has been sentenced to three years of probation and community service at an animal shelter for beating a duck.

Donald Chapman pleaded guilty to animal cruelty a few months ago, saying he kicked the mallard and beat it with a broom March 15 in the parking lot of the Fox Chase development he worked at in Galloway Township. [..]

Beall’s organization retrieved the duck after the beating and took it to the Galloway Animal Hospital for treatment.

The duck is doing well, officials said.’
