Drivers in Israel got a surprise this weekend: an on-the-run emu weaving in and out of traffic!

Video shows an emu, which escaped from a farm, zigzagging through traffic in the pouring rain.

The video was captured by a man on a scooter, who said he thought he was in the middle of a real-life cartoon.

The Associated Press reported:

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 The Associated Press: "I said to myself in a second, a coyote will appear from behind. This was a really absurd situation."

No one was hurt, and the emu was returned to its owner.
