This is such a clever idea and so kind as well. Some Montana police officers are making national news for a great cause.

Some folks in the Billings area received a break when the Billings Police Department started handing out turkeys instead of traffic tickets! People Magazine covered the story, and said  "The generous move was spurred by a local businessman donating the birds to the Billings Police Department."

Another news outlet, 'Morning Express with Robin Meade' also talked about this and had the funny caption 'License, registration and stuffing recipe please?'

You can see on the Billings Police Department's Facebook that they definitely surprised drivers. One of the drivers was really thankful as his wife had passed from cancer and he has fallen on tough times.
