LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Talk about driver distraction.

Drivers along the Kansas Turnpike near Eudora are reporting they have seen a peacock wandering around along the shoulder of eastbound Interstate 70 near the Tonganoxie-Eudora exit.

Kansas Turnpike officials say they've received several reports about the bird in the last week and a half..

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/KbvPzS ) maintenance crews and a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper have tried unsuccessfully to capture the bird.

Turnpike spokeswoman Lisa Callahan says crews want to capture the bird for its safety and the safety of drivers who might be distracted by it.

Callahan said no one knows where the bird came from.
