When I was in college, there was a pond near the school that had an abnormally high number of ducks. One day some of the Malaysian students decided to have a picnic and literally caught, killed, and BBQ'd ducks from the pond. It was quite a party until the police showed up. They had no idea they couldn't eat the ducks at the pond.
We need more information about the turkey incident and a cultural evaluation before we can point any fingers of wrongdoing. lol
