You'll not see them south of the border, obviously.  Edinburgh has one every year at the Princes Street markets.  It's offered up as sacrifice at Hogmanay, then the body is blessed and stored in the crypts of St Giles' Cathedral until ritual burning at the Beltane fire festival on Calton Hill in April.  The horn is used to replace the previous year's offering on the Mercat Cross unicorn in Parliament Square.  It protects the city from invasion and grants continued prosperity.

Wow , never knew that .
