Hurling Headless Sheep

I def plan on adding this to my list of to-dos before I die:

Ulak Tartysh is the national sport of the central Asian republic. The aim is to hurl the sheep carcass into a tub to score points for your team. The pitch is 300m (1,000ft) long and 150m (500ft) wide.

It is played as part of Nouruz, the Persian new year's day celebration which marks the start of spring.
