A CAR thief in Germany had to be rescued by the police who were attempting to catch him after he became cornered by a family of angry wild boar when he entered a dark forest.

The police initially lost track of the 18-year-old driver after catching his passenger during the night-time pursuit when he fled deep into the forest.

“Then he ran into the family of boars, and the head of the family squared up to him,” a police spokesman said on Friday. “So he stood there, put his hands up, and called for help.”

After being rescued from the boars, the man was arrested.
