A wild turkey in West Bloomfield has apparently been receiving too much media attention.

Darryl the West Bloomfield turkey had previously been an elusive bird who hung around busy roads. Now, he's a celebrity.

West Bloomfield police say he's been moved into the "witness protection program at an undisclosed location" due to the new attention and a few tips on some bad drivers.

In a tongue-in-cheek Facebook post, police say he plans on enjoying the ability to go out in public without being swarmed for autographs and selfies.
