From the Men of Action department:
I'm sure we'll soon see a blockbuster movie based on this event, except set in CA with Ahnold holding back marauding pythons with an automatic weapon. And the girls will be ages 21 and 22, beautiful, and scantily clad, of course.Livingston, Montana-AP -- Two Colorado girls vacationing in Montana used a cell phone to cry for help after finding themselves on a hillside infested with rattlesnakes.
Thirteen-year-old Izzy Effler and 12-year-old Morgan Beadwell climbed the hill Tuesday to try to get cellphone reception.
Izzy says a rattlesnake struck at her -- but didn't bite -- after her dog sniffed out a hole. Morgan then stepped on another snake, ran away, and saw another appear.
The girls were soon surrounded by six rattlers, and used the phone to call Izzy's father.
Brian Effler and his teen-age nephew ran up the hill with a pellet gun, shooting two rattlers before reaching the girls.
A rattlesnake trapper says he saw 25-to-30 snakes in the area.
The girls weren't hurt.
