There are parts of the continent where large animals are traffic hazards. Elk, deer, moose, and even the occasional bear can create havoc by blocking roads or worse still, getting hit by vehicles. Best that they stay off the road.
Bison are a big problem in Montana. The animals, which can reach 1,000 kg when fully grown, often mosey onto roads and highways. This is not ideal.
When a “bison on the road” call comes in (I wonder what the code is for that?), local police are called to sort out the situation. The standard remedy for getting them to move is to turn on the sirens and flashers. That, however, doesn’t always work.
The Sheriff’s office in Gallatin County seems to have found a new solution that works almost 100% of the time: Blasting the animals with AC/DC’s “Hell’s Bells.”
Why? No idea. But a little Brian and Angus is enough to get them to wander back into the forest.
