Saved by Creed? Norwegian Boy Fends Off Wolf Pack with Heavy Metal

Walter Eikrem listened to music on his mobile phone as he often does as he made his way home from school in the southern Norwegian town of Rakkestad earlier this week. The path leading from the stop where he catches the school bus to his family’s farmhouse traverses a gently sloping hillside. All of a sudden, he made out something gray on the hillside. “At first, I thought it might have been the neighbor’s dogs,” he later told TV2, Norway’s largest commercial broadcaster.
