Norwegian Boy Scares Off Wolves By Playing Creed

A 13-year-old Norwegian boy escaped a pack of wolves by playing them Creed’s single Overcome, authorities want to know what the kid was doing listening to Creed’s single Overcome.

International Business Times reports,

“Walter Eikrem from Rakkestdad was coming home from the school bus stop this week when he noticed a pack of wolves near his farm house, reports Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine. He mistook them for dogs but soon realized that it was pack of wolves, the boy remembered his mother’s oft-repeated drill to never run away from wolves.”

Instead the teen yanked his earphones from his smartphone, turned the volume to 11 and blasted everyone’s favorite Creed single at the wolf pack. “They didn’t really get scared. They just turned around and simply trotted away,” the boy says.

Walter admits to “flapping” and “flailing” his hands and arms in addition to screeching at the animals, so authorities are unsure which tactic scared the wolves away — the wolves unsure of which thing they were hearing was the music.
