According to CTV News, the legendary Metallica icon, James Hetfield saved a Canadian girl named Dee Gallant who shooed a Cougar with him.

Last week, Gallant made many headlines that she was being approached by a cougar while she was hiking.

She managed to scare the dog by blaring Metallica’s “Don’t Tread On Me.” After that news went on, Metallica legend James Hetfield reached Gallant.

Here is the rest of the story by Gallant:

“I was a little bit lost for words. It’s surreal how quickly it happened and how far it’s gone. The fact that he’s so down to earth and such a great person, I’m very pleased to find that out first-hand.

If you had told the 18-year-old me that this would happen, I never would’ve believed it. I would’ve just fallen out of my skin with excitement”

After a while off the phone call, James sent a selfie to Gallant and wrote this:

“Thought you might like some confirmation that it was me.”
