Turkey bowling

This game — a popular annual event in some communities — involves using a frozen turkey in place of a bowling ball to knock down bowling pins. The game is usually played on ice rinks and has become fairly common at minor league hockey games in the U.S. and Canada. The frozen birds used in turkey bowling are typically discarded store turkeys not intended for consumption.
