Montana Police Blast AC/DC To Move Bison Off of Highway

September 11, 2019

It can be dangerous for wildlife and drivers when a large animal like a bison is seen roaming on a highway. Thankfully for some Montana police officers, they had just the solution for the job.

In a post shared by the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office, deputies were able to clear a wild bison off of the road by blasting AC/DC. "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. With a reluctant bison, they’ve been known to play AC/DC’s Hell’s Bells over the speakers – that usually seems to work."

"Highway to Hell" could have also been a more appropriate solution, but whatever works.
