Radio station in Sacramento got into trouble with a planned 'groundhog' drop from a balloon on Feb 2. Uproar did not subside when the groundhog was revealed to be a package of pork sausage.

At least these had a fleeting flight and a little freedom as opposed to the one you'll have part of for thanksgiving.
