In case you missed it — a wild turkey has been roaming the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor's North Campus. For the past month, the bird has been spotted roaming the grounds.

According to MLive, the bird has not hurt anyone, but it has exhibited aggressive behavior by cornering people and apparently attempting to board buses. That's why the Department of Natural Resources is currently on the lookout for the animal. 

Officials have warned people not to approach it, and to instead alert the campus' Division of Public Safety and Security at 734-763-1131.
