Should you ever encounter a wild cougar on your travels, "Don't Tread On Me" ought to scare it off. Canadian woman Dee Gallant leaned this when she was walking her husky, Murphy, in British Columbia's Cowichan Valley. When she spotted a cougar slowly approaching her, Gallant started yelling and making loud noises that she hoped would make the fierce feline go away. When that didn't work, she started playing "Don't Tread on Me" on her phone.
"I thought it was the noisiest thing on my phone that would probably scare it, [but] that was also the message I wanted to convey to the cougar," Gallant explained to KelownaNow
. "As soon as the first notes blared out, it ran into the bush."
