Oh, no - can we eat the forgotten duck?

Do you think that Chinese duck, left at room temperature for 36 hours, can be eaten?

I bought Chinese roast duck, the kind that are left hanging in the windows of Chinatown stores - but it somehow didn't make it as far as the fridge. I keep thinking that the Chinese leave them hanging in warm restaurants for god knows how long, and they're okay. Do you think it would be all right to eat if heated up sufficiently to kill any germs?
