Danger! WOLVES on the road: How driving has become even hairier in Russia



A close shave: The traffic officer had a narrow escape by jumping inside the car (left) as a pack of 11 wolves came racing along the motorway

A traffic policeman was forced to dive inside a stranger's car on a motorway to take cover from a marauding pack of wolves.

The officer was reprimanding a motorist for having only one working headlight when the beasts came out of nowhere on to the M23 in Rostov-on-Don, south west Russia.

CCTV shows the man pulling the driver over for a telling off before a pack of 11 wolves come racing into view.

He then climbs inside the driver's car in the nick of time.

Footage has also been released showing hungry wolves devouring groceries from shoppers in a Moscow supermarket car park.

There are an estimated 30,000 grey wolves in Russia although the country offers the species no legal protection.

In fact in some parts of Russia, cash is offered as a reward for killing the animals and their dens.

Lunch time: Despite having a population of around 30,000 grey wolves, Russia offers the animals no legal protection
