BEES KILL 3 DOGS, INJURE WOMAN

RIVIERA BEACH

A swarm of bees that terrorized a Palm Beach County neighborhood killed three dogs and injured a 70-year-old woman. Authorities say crews removed 50 pounds of honeycomb from the side of a Riviera Beach home after Friday's attack. The hive has been contained. The bees swarmed Nancy Hill and her two dogs, killing the animals. The bees also attacked two other dogs in the neighborhood, killing one and sending the other to the veterinary hospital. Hill was treated at a hospital, where the stingers were removed. Lab tests would be needed to determine whether the bees were Africanized bees. Their stings are no more potent than an ordinary bee, but they are far more aggressive and attack in swarms. Experts think they can be found throughout the state.
