Ohio police dept. makes wily request on coyotes
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.
