A 13-year-old Norwegian boy avoided being attacked by wolves by playing a heavy metal song on his mobile phone, the Zvuki.ru music web portal reported on Thursday.
The incident took place in the central Norwegian municipality of Rakkestad. Four wolves, who appeared before the boy when he was returning home from school, were scared away by the noise coming from the boy's mobile phone, the Russian website said.
The song that saved the boy's life was by thrash metal band Megadeth.
The boy said he had been told that in order to avoid being attacked by wolves one should not run away from them but attack them.

- BastoidNot entirely true..22:53, 21/01/2011The story itself is true enough. But the choice of music is a lie in this case. According to the source itself (the actual boy), it was "Creed" with the track "Overcome".
Say you were in the same situation, what track would you choose?
I guess mine would be:
Mastodon's "The Wolf is Loose"
- slaskemannThe story is a lie!04:04, 24/01/2011I'm working with wolves in Norway through hard work. We also have the website www.rovdyrdebatt.org.
There is an article on that website, explains to you all why this story is a lie!
The story itselves is also told by some realy wolfhating ppl.
In Norway we have a hard and long way to go, trying to protect the wolves from illegal hunting, evil politic, lies, and all...
Hope u all can help to spread this message from us locals, living in the same area in Norway.
best wishes to all.
