He managed to outrun the police but he could not get away from the boars! Police in Schwerin say the 18-year-old abandoned a stolen SUV he was driving Thursday after failing to shake off a chasing patrol car by driving into a field. Police nabbed his passenger immediately. But they say the driver initially got away by running into nearby woods. Officers then heard the fugitive shouting for help — he had run into a herd of angry wild boars that were keen to protect their young. You will never know when nature decides not to favor you eh... What do you think? Read more: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080522/ap_on_fe_st/boar_bust;_ylt=Aqtsc.RYzZFjXfNcMbCUpCvtiBIF

Pigs are very strong animals and a danger if they take it into their heads to attack you. This is probably what happened to the car thief. Pigs can outrun a man anytime and a large, angry boar can tear a man to pieces if he's not careful and there is no tree to climb.
