Ohio po­lice dept. makes wily re­quest on coy­otes

Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - NATION & WORLD -

NORTH ROY­AL­TON, Ohio — An Ohio po­lice depart­ment out­side Cleve­land where fans of the “Road Run­ner” car­toon are ap­par­ently em­ployed has a re­quest for res­i­dents af­ter a string of re­cent coy­ote sight­ings.

The North Roy­al­ton Po­lice Depart­ment says res­i­dents shouldn’t call 911 about see­ing coy­otes un­less they see any of the fol­low­ing:

■ Coy­otes car­ry­ing any prod­uct marked “ACME.”

■ Coy­otes drop­ping anvils from hot air bal­loons.

■ Coy­ote post­ing signs such as “De­tour” or “Free Bird Seed.” ■ Coy­ote in pos­ses­sion of a gi­ant mag­net.

■ Coy­ote in pos­ses­sion of a cat­a­pult.

■ Coy­ote det­o­nat­ing “TNT.”

■ Coy­ote on roller skates with rock­ets at­tached.

In the car­toon, Wile E. Coy­ote is the Road Run­ner’s hap­less neme­sis. Stormy weather: Mois­ture from Hur­ri­cane Rosa could cause flash flood­ing to Baja Cal­i­for­nia, eastern Cal­i­for­nia, Las Ve­gas and Ari­zona as it ap­proaches the coast late Sun­day. The rem­nants of Rosa could bring as much as a year’s worth of rain to desert ar­eas such as Cal­i­for­nia’s Im­pe­rial Val­ley and Ari­zona’s Yuma County.
