Swarm of aggressive bees terrorizes neighborhood, kills 2 dogs
In what sounds like a terrifying environmental epidemic, a swarm of aggressive "killer bees" have been terrorizing a neighborhood just outside of San Francisco.
It started with 41-year-old Arthur Janke, who kept the beehives contained for 15 years.
When he decided to move the hives, they went uncharacteristically "berserk," repeatedly stinging him through his suit. Janke had to be hospitalized for treatment.
But he wasn't the only victim of his hobby gone wrong. The bees swarmed the streets, stinging everyone and everything in sight.
A resident of the neighborhood recalled the bees being so aggressive, they tried to break through windows.
Two dachshunds were killed after being repeatedly stung roughly 50 times each.
Local police and media were also attacked as they tried to assist residents on the block. As soon as anyone stepped out of their cars, the bees attacked.
When a mailwoman was attacked, witnesses say hundreds of bees swarmed in her hair. She now refuses to deliver mail to the street where the incident occurred.
Janke has struggled to dispose of the bees using a recommended technique of soapy water. However, many of the aggressive bees still remain at large.
