    Live Rattlesnakes Released In 'Snakes On A Plane' Theater

    Two live diamondback rattlesnakes were released in an Arizona movie theater during a showing of the new film "Snakes on a Plane," according to Local 6 News.

    Authorities said pranksters released the young venomous rattlesnakes in a dark theater at the AMC Desert Ridge near Tatum and Loop 101 in Phoenix.

    The two snakes caused a panic in the dark theater, according to the report.

    "That to me is very scary," herpetological association representative Tom Whiting said. "I would hate to be watching a movie about snakes and have a rattlesnake bite me."

    Wranglers were called to collect the snakes, the report said.

    No one was injured in the incident and, so far, the culprits have not been caught.Officials believe the snakes were smuggled into the theater in backpacks."

    This thing is under someone's chair and they go to sit and they just push your foot in the air and startle it -- obviously all they got to do is startle this thing," Phoenix Herpetological Society spokesman Daniel Marchand said. "It's dark. They can't see you, you know that well. If it's scared, boom it strikes."

    The snakes were released into the desert.

    Well I hope they catch the people that did it and give them some kind of beat down.

    No doubt. That is a stupid prank. They are lucky no one was bitten and died. Treatment for a rattle snake bite is expensive. These bozos, if caught should be locked in a closet with the snakes.

    The pranksters (or attempted murderers) should be tied up and put into a small, dark room with the snakes.

    Snakes are evil.

    The movie is evil.

    The pranksters are evil.

    (Can you tell, I have a problem with snakes?)

    I agree.

    How does attempted murder sound?

    They might as well have laced the popcorn butter with poison.
