Michael Thomas Bogan, assistant professor at the University of Arizona’s School of Natural Resources and the Environment, however, did manage to see a coyote chasing a roadrunner at the Santa Cruz River near Tucson, AZ. Thankfully for us, he managed to capture it on video, which he posted to Twitter.
