Montana deputies often use AC/DC's "Hells Bells" to clear stubborn bison off Yellowstone roads.

What are the details?

On Tuesday, the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office shared a post that has since gone viral.

The post read, "Being a deputy around West Yellowstone comes with unusual duties, including herding bison off the highway so no one gets hurt. When deputies respond to a bison on the road, they turn on lights and siren and encourage the animal to leave the road with an air horn."

"With a reluctant bison, they've been known to play AC/DC's Hell's Bells over the speakers — that usually seems to work," the post concluded.

According to USA Today, bison blocking the roads is actually more of an inconvenience than it sounds.

The outlet reports that bison can often leave drivers "stranded for 30 minutes or longer" while waiting for the extremely large animals to clear the road on their own.

The outlet writes, "The iconic critters are encountered outside the park, too, and local motorists can attest that it's sometimes difficult to persuade a 1,000- to 2,000-pound bison to let traffic pass."

Tourists are told to remain inside their vehicles while near bison "because the enormous animals are surprisingly fast and unpredictable."
