Roaming packs of wolves may not be so much of an issue here in the States, but in Russia, it's apparently somewhat common for them to be seen running down highways.

Take for instance this bizarre video caught by a security camera showing a routine traffic stop in Russia. The police officer is seen talking to the driver of the vehicle with the busted headlight, but then suddenly jumps into the driver's backseat. The reason? Oh yea, here come some wolves.

Seems like a pretty decent way to get out of a ticket, no?
