WATCH: Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb Terrorized by Loose Turkey

NBC’s Today often invites live animals onto the set for hilarious hijinks. This year’s Thanksgiving was no exception. On Thursday, hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb invited a live “domestic” turkey on the show. Things did not go well.

The animal’s handler began by noting that conservation efforts have brought the wild turkey back from virtual extinction to near ubiquity across the United States. When another handler tried to get the animal off the set, the turkey did not go quietly.
