Quote
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — It’s no secret that Metallica’s music can be kind of intense — so much so, one hiker says, that it scared off a curious cougar on Vancouver Island.

Dee Gallant, 45, was on a hike in South Duncan with her dog, Murphy, on July 23.

She said she was only a few miles into the woods when she turned around and realized that they had company: They were being stalked by a cougar.

At first, she was intrigued. She’d never seen one that close before, but then, she realized that the animal was approaching her.

She yelled, and the cougar stopped moving, but it didn’t retreat.

Gallant tried waving her arms and yelling at the cat, saying things like, “Bad kitty!” and, “Get out of here!” but the cougar stood its ground.

That is, until Gallant opened her phone and chose the loudest band she could think of: Metallica.

The song: “Don’t Tread On Me.”

It was both a warning and an appeal.

And that, apparently, was what did it. The cougar scurried off after the first few notes, the combination of heavy drums and James Hetfield’s vocals apparently too much to handle.

The incident lasted a total of five minutes, but Gallant said she wasn’t scared.

“I actually thought it was really cool that I got to see a cougar for so long,” she said. “I thought it was exciting.”

Gallant kept the song on loop for the rest of her hike, making sure to stay in the middle of the road and keeping Murphy close.

“I definitely think Metallica saved the day there, for sure,” she said.

That cat has been around gun shots before ... that's what it sounded like at the beginning of the metallic song.

That’s the difference between a chick and a dude, dude would have been looking for something to fight with, a stick or rock, not shoo bad kitty.

My neighbor had a monster tom pass through his property mid-day a week ago. The bears are out in spades as well.

Seems it wouldn't be safe to be out hiking in that area without a sidearm.

Almost certainly was after Murphy. Hoping to snatch and run off with him.

I certainly wouldn't be without a handgun doing that.

It’s Canada. I don’t think you can carry a handgun out in the woods ?

Correct, unless licensed.

Difference between deer poop and bear poop?

Bear poop smells like pepper spray and has bells in it.

Stay safe out there people.

You sure?

The quote ought to read, “bad kitty, eh”?


Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

I don’t think so. Residents can get a License to own one, though, I think.

Checked into hunting BC many years ago. No handguns allowed. For Americans. Period.

Maybe our most gentlemanly and kind Camp🔥 brother Dewayne can educate us on the subject. He is always most knowledgeable and very helpful on all things Canada and I always enjoy reading his posts here.

Not always, you gotta look out for farm girls.

A few years ago a petite little gal who went through school with my kids was in the woods with her husband fishing a small creek when a cougar came out of the brush after a little lap dog. This little 19 year old gal proceeded to beat the cat about the face with her fishing rod.

The cat slinked away to look for an easier meal elsewhere.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.
