For the majority of us, the most daunting part of the daily commute is running into standstill traffic when late for the school run, but it seems things are a little different in Canada's North Western Territories.

This amazing clip, which was filmed by Rhonda Miller as she travelled across the sparsely populated region in the remote north of Canada, shows the moment two giant Black Wolves started running alongside the car.
Miller told CBC News in Canada that she thought, at first, the black shape was a man walking along the road.

"I thought that was strange because you don't normally see people walking on the road that far out," she said.

"I slowed down a bit and I got closer. I thought it was a bear, and I thought, it can't be a bear because it was the wrong time of year."

Amazingly, the motorist, who was filming the incident on her mobile phone, then spotted a second animal.

"My body immediately became afraid," Miller explained. "I was so struck by the size of their heads and their jaws."

The driver continued to film the animals running 'flat out'.

"So many men have asked, how fast were they going? Had I been a man I may have looked. I don't know. I think between 40 and 50 [km/h]... it was fast," she added.
