    The top speed of a roadrunner is 32kph
    The top speed of a coyote is 69kph
    Our entire childhood would have been wiped out if Mythbusters was on TV before Looney Tunes.

    To make you feel better Geoff :D

    Of course, a couple facts get in the way of Wile E Coyote snacking on Road Runner. First of all, roadrunners have an amazing ability to use ground cover as they run and they rarely move in a straight line. Wild coyotes can’t expect roadrunners to actually stick to the road when their life is on the line! There is also the really pesky fact that roadrunners can fly. They prefer not to but if a coyote were about to catch a roadrunner that roadrunner would take to the wing and be gone!

    Finally, despite what Warner Brothers would like you to believe, there has never been a documented instance of a coyote catching a roadrunner.** Shocking, no? Especially considering that coyotes are known to eat pretty much everything!
