The popular cartoon show Looney Tunes was famous for the endless animosity between the Road Runner and Wile E Coyote. The coyote could never get hold of the ground cuckoo no matter how well he plotted and planned.
Looks like even in reality it is hard for the animal to overpower the avian opponent. At least, a recent video indicated to this outcome. Posted on Twitter, a few days back, the clip saw a coyote chasing a bird that seemed to be a roadrunner.
The user informed netizens that the incident was from Tucson, Arizona, and even in this video, the coyote had to accept defeat and retreat on its path. The post was captioned as: “OMG coyote vs roadrunner is real and it’s happening right now y’all!!!”
And the social media users dived into childhood Looney Tunes memory. While many celebrated the roadrunner’s victory, others were sure that Wile E Coyote would return with a better plan.

Looks the coyote ran off to order some kind of trap from ACME.— Kellyanne Burbage (@kellyanne1905) May 10, 2020
I was waiting on the electricity pole above to fall down and hit the coyote on the head. #disappointed— Calkob (@Hodl8333) May 10, 2020
He’s not giving up. He’s just going back to his drawing board. pic.twitter.com/BWBVHQb61a— One • Punch • Mickey ⚜️ (@brevolve) May 10, 2020
Many Twitter users pointed out how the coyote had detected that he was being filmed and looked at the camera.
It's the coyote's look to camera at the end that's the winner!— Cri 🕊🐝🐜 (@CrawliesWithCri) May 10, 2020
The coyote's like "Nobody saw that, right?"— Get To Know Nature (@GetToKnowNature) May 10, 2020
"I hope that's not a camera."— Robert Flynn ☘ 🌴 ✝ (@RobertFlynn202) May 14, 2020
The twitter user named Michael Bogan, who is a wildlife biology professor at the University of Arizona, also mentioned that the animals in the video were, in fact, a coyote and a roadrunner as they were quite common to sight near the Santa Cruz River area.

My Mum thought the bird in the cartoons was just a weird American chicken. I remember her delight when she saw a BBC documentary about real life roadrunner!— Mandy Patrish (@mandypatrish) May 10, 2020
