BERLIN (AP) -- Police in northern Germany say they rescued a woman and her 2-year-old child whose car was swarmed -- by a herd of pigs.
Police said the woman called them Friday afternoon from outside the tiny village of Wanderup, near the Danish border. She said "20 relatively large hip-high pigs" had surrounded her VW Golf after she had driven off the road into a field.
She told them they had formed such a tight circle and were behaving so aggressively that she couldn't flee the car.
Police say they were able to free the woman and her child without incident.
