Looney Tunes’ classic cartoon story is played out in real life in the wild in Arizona
A university professor shared a video with a coyote chasing a roadrunner (Roadrunner). The cunning Coyote and Roadrunner are two characters in the eponymous series of short animated series Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. Both characters (Coyote and California Plantain Cuckoo) were created by animator and director Chuck Jones in 1948 for Warner Bros. The other day, Michael Thomas Bogan, an assistant professor at the University of Arizona School of Natural Resources and Environment, made an amazing video in Tucson, Arizona. “A coyote is chasing a runner. “I can’t believe it. It’s just like the cartoon,” says Professor Bogan in the video.
The movie did not end in an explosion, no one fell off a rock and did not get his head hit on the anvil, as in the cartoon, but the video quickly became viral, gaining over 300 thousand views. According to the professor, near the Santa Cruz River he repeatedly saw both coyotes and roadrunners, but never witnessed such a chase.
