GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A turkey that has been running around a Greensboro neighborhood for years has finally been caught.
The wild turkey that lived in a northwest Greensboro neighborhood for years was taken to the Guilford County Animal Shelter on Friday.
“We were able to, on foot, chase the turkey to an area where there was a fence and close in the distance and put a net on the bird,” said Eric Mann with Guilford County Animal Control.
Animal control officers said the turkey is headed to a new home at Caswell Game Lands just south of Yanceyville in Caswell County.
A wildlife officer said the turkey will be located in a safety zone where he won`t be subject to hunting.
Some Greensboro residents said the turkey was becoming a menace, while others didn’t seem to be bothered by him.
