Yet another instance of guns saving lives.
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.
