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 Germanyâ€™s Der Spiegel magazine. He mistook them for dogs but soon realized that it was pack of wolves, the boy remembered his motherâ€™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,â€ 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.
