A turkey has been spotted wandering the streets in downtown Ottawa this morning.

The volunteer organization Safe Wings Ottawa used social media to ask pedestriansĀ not to chase the turkey into traffic and motorists to drive safely.

CBC Ottawa traffic reporter Doug Hempstead got pretty excited.

The turkey was later rescued by Safe Wings Ottawa.
