It's a given that Canada loves hockey, but our neighbors to the north also like throwing teddy bears apparently. At a recent Calgary Hitmen hockey game, fans celebrated the 17th annual "teddy bear toss" by throwing stuffed animals onto the ice in honor of the team's first goal.

It might be hard to, um, bear this mistreatment of stuffed animals, but there's an upside. Each of the 25,000 toys were collected and donated to the Alberta Children's Hospital.

Watch the teddy bear toss below from two different angles.
