CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (AP) – A wild turkey that’s become semi-famous for chasing pedestrians and bicyclists in Ohio has been struck by a car and injured.

Cleveland.com reports the turkey was struck Thursday in the Akron suburb of Cuyahoga Falls and was taken by a wildlife team to an exotic-animal veterinarian for treatment of a broken leg.

The male turkey is named Frank and became aggressive toward people after a female turkey with which he was often seen was struck and killed about a year ago.

A worker at a business in the area where Frank chased people and even vehicles says he might have been separated from a local flock.

The wildlife team hopes to release Frank into an area with a wild turkey flock after his recovery.
