An animal rescue group has captured one of two wild turkeys running loose in a San Jose neighborhood.

Video from Wildlife Emergency Services shows the turkeys that have been named Jake and Jenny. They were first spotted near First Street and I-880 around the holidays.

The group was able to capture Jake on Friday. They say he developed a habit of chasing cars. Neighbors say he caused two traffic accidents.

Jake will likely be re-released somewhere far from people.

Jenny was able to elude rescuers. They will return to the area this week to try to catch her.
