An emu went for a Sunday morning run in Herzliya.
The bird was caught on camera, legging it down a rainy road and weaving between cars.
Fortunately, motorists slowed down to avoid the animal.
At a junction, the emu can be seen narrowly avoiding a collision with a car.
Authorities say the bird escaped from a private farm in the town.
Passer-by Iliya Zelser filmed the bird’s run. He says the experience made him feel like he was in a cartoon.
Zelser says he expected to hear the “beep beep” of the cartoon Road Runner.
The 27-year-old told news sources: “I said to myself in a second, a coyote will appear from behind. This was a really absurd situation.”
Dorit Basman, the spokesman for the town of Herzliya, says authorities caught the emu Sunday and safely returned it to its owner.
