A wild turkey who has been on the loose in the far north suburbs for months has been captured-- finally.The turkey known as "Sparkles" to some Lake Bluff residents has been wandering around the intersection of Route 176 and Green Bay Road.

However, Friday afternoon, Garon Fyffe finally captured it by holding out some corn and multi-grain Cheerios to lure Sparkles.

It took Fyffe two tries, but he finally managed to get his net over the animal.

Fyffe says Sparkles will now be relocated to be with other wild turkeys.
