Turkey bowlers take to the ice

Lots of Americans will be tucking into turkey dinners this week as part of the Thanksgiving celebrations.

But some turkey lovers in the state of Ohio have found a whole new use for the festive birds... turkey bowling!

The aim of the game is simple: throw a frozen turkey across an ice rink and knock down as many bowling pins as possible.

As if the title of Champion Turkey Bowler wasn't enough, the winner also pockets around £60 ($100).
