Law enforcement officials in Gallatin County, Montana have found a unique new use for the music of AC/DC: to move large animals off the road and out of oncoming traffic.
The county Sheriff’s Office shared a picture via Facebook on Tuesday (September 11th) of a massive bison blocking the road in oncoming traffic. The post explains, “Being a deputy around West Yellowstone comes with unusual duties, including herding bison off the highway so no one gets hurt. When deputies respond to a bison on the road, they turn on lights and siren and encourage the animal to leave the road with an air horn.”
The post continues, “With a reluctant bison, they’ve been known to play AC/DC’s 'Hell’s Bells' over the speakers — that usually seems to work.”
The story is similar to another incident that occurred last August, in which a woman in Vancouver, British Columbia scared a cougar away by blasting “Don't Tread On Me” by Metallica on her phone.
AC/DC reportedly intends to release a new album as a tribute to late guitarist and co-founder Malcolm Young, but the band has yet to make any official announcement regarding its plans. And that's no bull.
