“Kevin’s travels through a highly-populated area posed a hazard to himself and others, necessitating his relocation,” a spokesman from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said.
“Kevin was transported using a National Wild Turkey Federation box to a safe location, and released on a written promise to continue eating plenty of roots, bulbs and leaves,” DEEP said.
