Cell Phone Call Saves Girls Surrounded By Rattlesnakes Rattlesnake Trapper Finds 25 To 30 Snakes In Area

LIVINGSTON, Montana -- Two Colorado girls vacationing in Montana used a cell phone to call for help after finding themselves on a hillside infested with dozens of rattlesnakes.
Izzy Effler, 13, and Morgan Beadwell, 12, climbed a hill in Livingston to try to get cell phone reception.
However, while climbing, Izzy said a rattlesnake struck at her.
Morgan also reportedly stepped on a snake.
The girls then discovered that they were surrounded by six rattlers and used the phone to call for help, according to the report.
Brian Effler and his nephew eventually rescued the girls after shooting two of the snakes.
A rattlesnake trapper said he saw 25 to 30 snakes in the area.
The girls were not injured.

I would have emptied a full clip on it, then I would have reloaded! I'm not a snake lover.
Surrounded by vipers. Kinda like being the lone Republican at the democrat convention.
Rattle-snake jihad <---Hey that's a good name for a band, Mind if I use it?
I have always liked, been interested in and kept snakes, but I have never seen a rattler in the wild. I think it would be cool.
Cell phones save people. Guns kill people.
I thought it was: stem cells save people (except aborted babies). Cell phones cause brain cancer (or headaches if you have a lousy carrier). Gun control saves criminals (and liberals then put idiotic judges in place to set the thugs free).
Any more questions???
UGH! I've got a brother that does strange things sometimes, like picking up pigmy rattlesnakes. He's been bitten twice, so we hope he learned his lesson.
When did they decide to move the DNC Convention? I didn't get the memo!
What that funny Indiana Jones movie line: "Snakes! Snakes!! Why'd it have to be snakes?"
"Stop that. Snakes are good. Rats are bad."
Snakes eat RATS. Didn't the devil show up as a snake? Don't snakes tend to eat their victims head-first?
With all the RATS going to Boston - sounds like a Boston Market for snakes!
(the RATS are so full of snake venom they don't even know they are dead & half-devoured already - thank God for the antidote Jesus Christ (the Brazen Serpent) who sets the captive free!!!)
When a girl's surrounded by rattle snakes, a cell phone is the next best thing to having John Wayne around...
(If you don't get this, you haven't seen enough John Wayne movies.)
(arms folded across chest) Well I don't like either one!
Rattle Snakes and the Serpent are not the same. But Boston would be a good place to release some rat eating snakes.
I won't make you like them but the snakes do have a noble purpose.
Don't tell that to this girl
It's illegal to shoot lawyers in every state.
Namely, to give Laura Earl the willies.
Yeah, to scare the @#$% out of me. :(
Thanks Laz...CG, he gets it!
Ironically, the snake was trying to make a call on its cell phone.
