A highway patrol officer in Russia had just stopped a driver on the M23 in Rostov-on-Don, when a pack of 11 wolves came racing down the highway behind him.
Check out the video! The traffic cop has to ask the driver to open the back door and let him in – FAST! Then the wolves go racing by.
Wolves are hounding people in other places in Russia, too. They’ve been patrolling supermarket parking lots, grabbing shopping bags and making off with the food.
Part of the problem is that wolves are not a protected species in Russia, and are fair game for hunters. Gray wolf numbers have dropped to below 30,000 and more and more they find themselves having to find new ways of getting by in an increasingly urbanized world.
