Last week, the story of Dee Gallant made headlines after she posted a video of her standoff with a cougar and eventually using Metallica’s Black album to shoo it away.
According to CTV News, a Metallica representative reached out to Gallant and told her frontman James Hetfield would be calling her shortly.
“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.”
During the conversation the two talked about their dogs, living on the island and living in California.
“I can’t believe he knows my dog’s name. 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.”
Hetfield decided to send a selfie with the “rock on” symbol and a message that said:
“Thought you might like some confirmation that it was me.”
