Good morning. I'm David Greene. In Montana, a businessman bought 20 turkeys. He asked the Billings Police Department to distribute them to the community before Thanksgiving, which the police are doing in a curious way. They are pulling drivers over for traffic violations.

One driver jokingly told the Billings Gazette he needs another violation so he can get a turkey for Christmas, too. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
