"When deputies respond to a bison on the road, they turn on lights and siren and encourage the animals to leave the road with an air horn," the Sheriff's Office wrote Tuesday on Facebook. "With a reluctant bison, they've been known to play ' Hells Bells' over the speakers - that usually seems to work."

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.

Another tourist injured by bison at a national park; second such incident in a week

Another tourist injured by bison at a national park; second such incident in a week Park regulations require that visitors stay at least 25 yards away from large animals such as bison, elk, deer and horses. Last week, Yellowstone National Park officials say a bull bison tossed a 9-year-old girl into the air when the animal charged a group of about 50 tourists. Yellowstone park officials said the bison rushed the group July 22 after some of the tourists approached to within 5 to 10 feet of the animal over at least 20 minutes. The Odessa, Florida, girl was taken to Old Faithful Lodge by her family for treatment by emergency personnel. She was later taken to a clinic and released.

Driving through Yellowstone up near Mammoth Hot Springs, we had to stop and wait for some bison to vacate the roadway. Unfortunately not all the motorists did.

However, the power of music is not to be underestimated when it comes to close wildlife encounters.

In late July a hiker in British Columbia, Canada, claimed that she scared off a mountain lion that had been stalking her by playing the heavy-metal song "Don't Tread On Me" by Metallica.
