People living and working around a particular intersection in Ypsilanti have come to expect one wild turkey's trots to block traffic, but that has only won the hearts of many and led to the creation of a Facebook page for fans of the turkey.

On Friday, wildlife experts with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources began looking at ways to try to trap the turkey and relocate it to a protected area in Chelsea.
