Betty Maxwell says she plans to wear boots to work now that she's been bitten by a rattlesnake at her desk. "This is unbelievable," the 36-year-old woman said from her hospital bed. "It's something you would never expect to happen." Maxwell, a service and billing representative for Triangle Telephone Cooperative in Havre, Mont., was sitting at her desk Tuesday when she reached down to plug her calculator into an outlet along a rock wall, said Burl Miner, the cooperative's general manager. He said Maxwell jerked her hand back and remarked that something had bitten her on the index finger. The woman noticed bite marks, so a co-worker immediately took her to a local hospital, where she was recovering. Then another employee looked under the desk. "They retrieved a flashlight to see what it was, and they found a small rattlesnake between the desk and the rock wall," Miner said.
